Pasta - Sweet Potato Pasta Sauce 

Sweet potato and heavy cream blended into your pasta sauce, with or without tomatoes!

For these recipes you can use baked sweet potatoes for the most flavor.
You could also peel, cube and steam in salty water. When soft remove lid and add an appropriate fat, and cook until sweet and very reduced.

Do this idea after the fall squashes and pumpkins are not available anymore.

Sweet potatoes are available fresh from the ground much longer.
