Really nice dish I whipped up when I was desperate to use raw sweet potatoes for the first time. It turned out great!

Recipe Directions

I used a sprializer to shave my sweet potatoes into angel hair strands, but you could also use a zester.
Throw everything else into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour over pasta and let sit for 15-20 minutes.

Pine nuts are traditional for pesto, I just didn't have any today. I think any nuts would be good though.

Sounds like such a great idea! :) Pesto recipes always seem to use walnuts, which I really don't care for. Would some other nut work you think? Pecans maybe? Or brazil nuts?

That sounds awesome! It sounds a lot like the Butternut Squash Con Agli Olio recipe on this website that I really love.

this sounds so good. i just started making "pasta" out of sweet potatoes, using my zester. And i have to say I LOVE IT!! :9 they're so sweet and have a nice texture when cut into very thin pieces. can't wait to try them with this sauce.
