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
- 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!
