Spiralized vegetables again, you say? Sure, CAN DO!

What’s up, my internet BFFs!? How’s the outside-world? I haven’t seen much of it since I’m kinda stuck inside the house with everyone getting those back-to-school cooties. Ugh. I’ve had enough!

Is it just me, or does everyone run around with Lysol Disinfectant Spray, spraying every inch of every blanket, remote control, pillow, etc…? My mom says I need to stop with the Lysol because the kids aren’t catching all this at home – they’re getting it from school.

That makes total sense to me, but I’m too attached to that Lysol Spray. It tells me that I’m doing something about nasty, unwelcome germs and viruses chillin’ around, taking up space in my house. I do overdo it, though. I use up a large can in 3 days. Lysol truly IS my buddy. ????

In unrelated news, Sweet Potato Noodles with Spinach! 

This recipe is a result of standing in the kitchen… hAngry… having just taken a disastrous pasta casserole out of the oven. Pasta to sauce ratio was WAY off. Driest pasta dinner of ever. I threw that out and made this as a side dish to some quick pan-seared chicken breasts.

What’s before us is … besides being completely delicious…this is buttery, it’s so flavorful, and it’s BE!YOND! I’m kinda glad I haven’t been able to put down that spiralizer – so far, everything I’ve spiralized has come out great.

Basically, we’re taking spiralized sweet potatoes and sauteing them with our usual combination of onions and garlic. A bag of green leafy spinach, some fresh herbs and a sprinkle of parm cheese pulls everything together.

I thought about adding some sauce to this, or even pesto, but I changed my mind. I thought it was very good all on its own. If you have a preference for saucier food, g’ahead. For some reason, I’m thinking tomato sauce would work for me. Maybe not for everyone, but I’m diggin’ it.

Serve this as a meal or serve it as a side dish – it will be inhaled either way.

    This was amazing. I beg you to not use Lysol any more though. Its very toxic for you and your kids and can actually surpress the immune system.

    This dish is amazing! I saw it on pinterest, and decided that it was going to be tonight’s dinner on the spot, since I had all the ingredients on hand and a brand new spiralizer that I was waiting to try. My kids loved it too! They helped me spiralize the sweet potato. Thanks for the great recipe. I’ll definitely be making this over and over again.

  3. Linda

    All I can say is YUMMY! I made these for my meatless Monday night dinner. Soooooo good…the only thing was my sweet potato’s mushed up more than yours did…..didn’t affect the taste…..just don’t look as pretty 🙂 Thanks for a great recipe!!!!! Loved….loved….loved!!!!!
