- Sweet Potato Noodles: I used MANN Food brand which I found in the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store.
- Veggies: This recipe includes garlic, onion, sun dried tomatoes, and spinach which come together nicely in this dish.
- Goat Cheese: When warmed, it will get all melty and provide an incredible, creamy texture.
- White Wine: I used a Chardonnay, but cooking wine or whatever you have on hand will work great.
- Heavy Cream: Makes our sauce super rich and creamy. You could also substitute coconut cream.

How to Make This Recipe
Step 1: Cook the sweet potato pasta according to the bag instructions. I used the 3 minute microwave method for convenience.
Step 2: Heat a skillet to medium heat and melt a tablespoon of butter. Then, add garlic, red onion, and sun dried tomatoes. Sauté for 4-6 minutes.
Add in goat cheese, white wine and heavy cream. Whisk together until the cheese is completely melted. Then, add in parmesan cheese and let it melt. Pour in lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt + pepper. Whisk again and then pour sauce over noodles.
Step 3: Plate and top with freshly crumbled goat cheese, shaved parmesan, fresh parsley and cracked pepper. Enjoy!
When you cook with wine, its flavor becomes more concentrated as the alcohol cooks out, bringing different profiles to the dish. If you use a dry wine, it will add savory flavor. If you use a sweet wine, it'll add sweetness. The acidity in the wine also helps delicate ingredients maintain their texture and prevents them from drying out. Plus, it doesn't hurt to enjoy a glass on the side while you cook!
Sweet potatoes are chock full of health benefits, making them a food you'll want to consider in your diet regularly.
First off, sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber. Ideally, you want to eat 25-30 grams of fiber per day to keep your digestive system on track and maintain gut health. One cup of sweet potato has about 4 grams of fiber.
Packed with antioxidants, sweet potatoes also have cancer-fighting properties.

Store in an airtight container for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave for ~60 seconds before enjoying!
It’s important to continually whisk the sauce. It helps ensure the ingredients are mixed well and prevents burning.
If your sauce is a little watery, add some flour or corn starch to thicken it up. This'll also help it stick to the noodles.
