Sweet Potato Noodles with Turkey Sausage and Spinach


Do you  know what is even better than zucchini noodles?

Sweet potato noodles.  Hands down.  Done the same way – using the spiralizer – they are just heartier and more “noodle like” in my opinion.

This recipe is very similar to the one I posted the other day…same but different, so I’m posting it anyway.

To accompany this dish, I get some Italian Turkey sausage at Fresh Market, remove the casing and chop it all up to release the flavor.  It’s very simple.  Simple is how I roll these days.

Sweet Potato Noodles with Turkey Sausage and Spinach

Serves 2

  • 1 large sweet potato (or 2 small), spiralized
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white onion, diced (optional)
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1/2 pound turkey sausage, casing removed
  • 1/2 jar pasta sauce (I use The Fresh Market brand)

Place sweet potato noodles in a large bowl, season with sea salt, and pat dry with a paper towel if necessary.

Heat a large skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Add oil and garlic and let simmer 1-2 minutes.  Add onion and cook until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.  Add sausage, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until browned.  Add noodles, spinach and pasta sauce and stir to combine.  Cook until heated through and spinach is wilted.  Transfer to a bowl and enjoy!
