Sweet Potato Noodles with Alfredo Sauce

    A healthy alternative to traditional fettuccini alfredo, this naturally gluten-free pasta recipe is made with nutrient-rich sweet potato noodles.


    Fall is sweet potato season but if I’m being honest with you, we have them in our kitchen all year round. Quick-cooking, versatile, affordable and packed with nutrients, I love feeding sweet potatoes to my family. 


    Since my boys happen to be obsessed with pasta, I’ve been experimenting with sweet potato noodles as a healthier alternative. We have enjoyed sweet potato noodles in the past so I decided to try tossing them in a simple alfredo sauce.


    Rich, creamy and slightly sweet, these sweet potato noodles with alfredo sauce are a family favorite. Serve with grilled chicken or shrimp and a simple side salad and dinner is done.

    Your fork is waiting.
