No need to say I’m a
big fan of pasta…
I’m also a big fan of
… and a big fan of
sweet potatoes and green peas and sage…
Today’s recipe combines
all those ingredients.
The novelty is the quinoa noodles… Their texture is a
little bit different than the regular wheat pasta. Kind of chewy, it’s definitely
a good gluten free alternative.
Not that I’m switching
to gluten free. To be honest, I made this pasta in an attempt to bring
something different, flavorful and healthy to the table.
Having pasta with
sweet potatoes, sage, green peas and bacon is like having a feast of flavors,
colors and textures in just one plate.
I hope you like my recipe that I first published on Mamás Latinas.

1 package of quinoa

, strain and reserve. In a
skillet over medium heat, add the bacon and cook until golden, about 5 minutes.
Let the bacon drain on paper towels. Discard half of the bacon fat. Add olive
oil and sauté the sweet potatoes, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Drain
them on paper towels. In the same pan add the garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
