Simply Pesto Sweet Potato Pasta

IMG_6282

I love spiralized sweet potato. It makes the most under-rated noodles. I saw a write-up for easy pasta dishes on BuzzFeed for one with arugula, EVOO and parmesan from Gimme Some Oven. (At this point, we can admit I’m a BuzzFeed addict. I receive a biweekly food letter from them, so that never discourages my addiction.) I still have quite a bit of arugula from Arugula Cilantro Pesto, so I decided to make this with arugula, pesto, cannellini beans and sweet potato noodles. It’s easy and savory. Drizzle a little extra EVOO and toss with parm and this Arugula & Parmesan Sweet Potato Pasta is your next Meatless Monday dinner.

Happy meatless Monday! I’ve been a little absent with school this past semester. Since we have one less class and one less clinical day, I hope to get more things written up and posted that I’ve already added to Instagram.

What an easy meal to whip together — sauté some veggies, open a can of beans, toss in the noodles and top with sauce. Now that I have a heartier spiralizer (thanks to the Inspiralizer from William Sonoma), I can’t wait to try making these at home!

Guuuuuys, this soup is sooooo goooood. And it’s Dee approved (aka my roommate had a bowl with me for dinner tonight). It’s a one pot recipe so quite easy to make and easy clean up. It’s been rainy, chilly and windy in Boston this week (happy first week of May?) so a warm soup was in the cards, but one that was still light and fresh and indicative of the warmer weather that should be here. I’ve never bought bok choy before, but it was addition and a welcomed break from kale or spinach. I’ve also been slightly obsessed with sweet potato noodles lately, so I swapped rice noodles for some more hearty veggies. Dee and I may or may not have had seconds of this Sesame Chicken Soup with Sweet Potato Noodles. And by “may,” we definitely did!
