Sweet potatoes. I do love sweet potatoes. While many people just eat them around thanksgiving and/or Christmas I think they are a great veggie all year round. Baked usually, with some butter and sugar and cinnamon. Or maybe cut into fries and baked (or fried). Even Sweet potato pie or bread is good. That was the extent of my sweet potato fixings. But, thanks to Chaya and her pick this week I have added another sweet potato dish to the list.


Speghetti (or linguini) tossed with roasted tomatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, spinach, Parmesan, and Feta cheese. The tang of the Feta mixed with the sweetness of the diced sweet potatoes (and even the sweetness of the roasted tomatoes {and you know how I feel about those….}) made for a welcome simple lunch. It was very good.

Check with Chaya,and Gaye for their pasta dishes.
