Sweet Potato Pasta


Sometimes parents are tired of eating kid-friendly pasta. We want to experience more flavors. But who wants to prepare two different dinners? Then, here comes this sweet potato pasta, with surprising flavor to make the adults happy, but with a creaminess that kept my kids thrilled too (plus it’s a kid-friendly color).   And though it tastes extremely rich, the sauce is made with mostly milk and only a bit of cream. After all the tons of pasta we’ve been testing and eating while writing this book, this is the one I dream about the most.        -V.


Prepare the Sweet Potato Pasta

1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, add potatoes to a medium saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Boil until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash.
3. Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Slowly add milk and heavy cream and whisk until smooth. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce thickens.
4. Gradually add mashed sweet potatoes, whisking until smooth. Cook for an additional five minutes.
5. Add pasta, a little bit at a time, to the sauce. Add in cheese and mix until melted. Season with salt. Serve hot.
