Story

If you haven’t tried veggie noodles, now’s the time! In this updated take on pasta primavera, we’re replacing spaghetti with strands of spiralized sweet potato, and coating them in a creamy, decadent Alfredo sauce. For a seasonal twist, we’re adding spring ingredients like asparagus, peas, and parsley (primavera does mean spring, after all!) and tossing it all together for a sensational plate of veggies that doesn’t skimp on flavor or texture.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400ºF. Rinse asparagus. Trim and discard woody ends, then cut on a diagonal into ½-inch pieces. Remove and discard mushroom stems, then wipe caps clean with a damp paper towel and thinly slice. Finely chop almonds and place in a small bowl. Rinse parsley, pat dry, and finely chop leaves, discarding stems. Add to bowl with almonds along with 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Mince garlic

  2. Roast Sweet Potatoes

    While sweet potatoes roast, in a medium high-sided pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add mushrooms and sauté until lightly browned, 5-6 minutes. Add asparagus and sauté until cooked through but still crisp, 2-3 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. 

  4. Make Alfredo Sauce

    Push vegetables to outer edges of pan and, still over medium-high heat, add butter to center of pan. When butter is foamy, add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add milk and cream and stir to combine with vegetables. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and cook until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining Parmesan and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired.
