Roasted Sweet Potato Pasta - Donna Hay WWDH

This week was my pick and I chose Roasted Sweet Potato Pasta.  I am sure, I didn't read the recipe carefully, since when I was going shopping to pick up any items, needed, I was surprised at the combination.  Sweet potatoes, tomatoes, pasta, spinach, Parmesan, Lemon juice and Feta do not resonate with me.  That is, until I made this dish which was really very good.  While the feta was delicious, I kept envisioning goat cheese in its place.

The juice from the tomato combined with the Parmesan cheese and some black pepper made for a lovely sauce.  Donna doesn't seem to use a lot of spices and yet her dishes have good flavor.

The recipe can be found on Donna's site.  As usual, it is an easy recipe to make.  Rarely, do we find exotic ingredients and this held true with this dish.  This was made in the oven, nothing to fry.  The pasta had to be boiled so that did call into play another pot.  All in all, it went smoothly and was a nice meal with baked onion salmon.

I can't wait to see how the other members of our group liked this dish and what they did with it.  You can go on over and see for yourself.  If you would like to cook with us, please do join in.  Just let one of us know so we can add you to the names below.
