Healthy Recipe Week: Melissa Nibbles

Good afternoon! I hope you have been enjoying Healthy Recipe Week so far. I am, and all of recipes are going to be added to my meal-planning in the very near future. Inspiration from fellow bloggers is certainly helpful when you are in a cooking funk!

Todays post is for Sweet Potato Pasta from Melissa Nibbles, a blog I head to first thing every morning for lots of laughs, candid posts, restaurant reviews, and dating stories. Winking smile

I love sweet potatoes, I love whole wheat pasta, and I love Greek yogurt. All three together in a nutritious, hot, and quick meal seem like the perfect recipe for a day like today.

Most of all I love Melissa’s blog, especially on Three Things Thursday! I wasn’t able to comment today, but I laughed out loud about the piece on Experts, especially blogger running experts. If you haven’t checked it out, go now!


Sweet Potato Pasta
1 box of whole wheat pasta
Extra virgin olive oil
2 sweet potatoes
sea salt
2 shallots, sliced
1 tbs chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/3 Greek yogurt

Cook pasta according to directions on the box. While the pasta is cooking, heat about a tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes, 3⁄4 teaspoon sea salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add the shallots and rosemary and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. When pasta is done cooking, reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, drain the pasta and return to the pot. Toss the pasta with the potato mixture, Parmesan, and reserved water.
