I’ve never been a big mac and cheese fan. But every once in awhile I get a craving for it. So when I was asked to cook for a yam festival, I thought why not combine two comfort foods – mac and cheese and sweet potatoes. Turns out, it’s delicious! Plus pasta made with beans provides a significant protein boost and is gluten-free!
I recommend cooking this pasta for about a minute and a half less than the instructions. It’s better al dente. Sweet potatoes are pretty much a daily staple in my home and they taste good in a variety of recipes! Share with me in the comments your favorite and creative ways to eat incorporate sweet potatoes into dishes.
