Pasta is always my go-to comfort food. It's simple, fast, warming and filling. Usually I stick to tomato sauce, but when I made this dish I was craving something a little different. And as I had some leftover baked sweet potatoes in the fridge I used them to make this delicious and super-creamy pasta sauce. In addition to sweet potatoes it also contains sun dried tomatoes, tahini, lemon, garlic, mustard, nutritional yeast, basil and spices. All the ingredients are simply blended together which makes this recipe super simple.
Have a lovely weekend!
