Today I am very excited to bring you this super easy Sweet Potato and Tomato Pasta Sauce. I know it sounds weird but this sauce rocks in every level of deliciousness.
A few days ago I was in the kitchen with no idea what to cook (again! lol). My husband loves pasta (and I do too, sometimes) but I get easily tired of the same old tomato sauce. Well, I opened the fridge, I saw one big and beautiful sweet potato, and it hit me! (Add me! Add me! – the sweet potato was screaming!) Haha… Yup! 🙂 and because I like to try new things in the kitchen, I didn’t doubt any second.
I ended up with a thicker sauce with a great texture, bit of creaminess and with a sweet hint at the end. I mashed the sweet potato instead of blending it, but if you like smooth sauces you can blend it for sure. It will be delicious.
I am sure you will love this recipe, because:
It is simple
Use just a few ingredients
It is creamy and chunky (crazy, right?)
It is Vegan. Wohoo!
