Sweet Potato Noodles with Sage

Some people have told me that they just can’t get on board with zoodles. I get that. Perhaps zucchini does not appeal to you. Enter Sweet Potato Noodles. You guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious this dish is!!! This is such a simple recipe with just a few ingredients that delivers a lot of flavor!


What You Need

2 large sweet potatoes, spiralized

2 tbsp olive oil for sweet potatoes plus 1-2 tsp for sauce

1/2 to 3/4 of a bag of real bacon bits

2-3 tbsp of red onion, chopped fine

1/2 stick of real butter (I use unsalted to keep sodium down)

1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese

1 tsp of sage

1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg

What You Do


–Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium high in a large skillet. Add sweet potatoes. Saute for 8-10 minutes. If they start to brown, turn the heat down to medium.

–Toss bacon bits in a small separate skillet and cook for 5 minutes until hot and crisp.

–In a small saucepan, heat 1 tsp of olive oil and cook red onions for 2 minutes. Add butter and stir continuously until melted and browned. About 3 minutes.

–Add sage, nutmeg, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses to butter mixture until cheese is melted.

–Add bacon to sweet potatoes and toss the sauce over it. Serve immediately.

    I haven’t tried the sweet potato yet on the spiralizer but I imagine it’s delish!

    SO much yum! I have not gotten a spiralizer yet, because I fear I would be too lazy to use it! But I am definitely thinking I could loosely follow this recipe with thinly sliced potatoes!

    I have been hesitant to try a spiralizer since I am so allergic to many, many veggies. But, I can get down with a sweet potato, so I may have to try it!

    I need to try to make these! I’ve only made the zucchini noodles!

  • Reply alyssa February 17, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    So I haven’t gotten around to picking up a spiralizer myself yet, and I’ve actually never cooked sweet potatoes! This looks so yummy though. Might have to figure out a way to make it happen 🙂

    I have been wanting to try a sweet potato with my Veggetti so bad. This sounds like an easy recipe to try with it too! I’ve been eyeballing everything sweet potato lately. I’m glad you pre-tested so I know it’s good!
