One of the most popular food trends right now is one-pot meals.
They are easy, delicious, and minimum cleanup. Win-Win!
Fall is my absolute favorite season.
I love the crisp cool air, bonfires, hot chocolate, and the excuse to eat tons of creamy rich comfort foods like this pasta!
November and December are times of family get togethers and holiday parties.
I’m a sucker for pasta, and this one pot sweet potato and spinach pasta is basically my dream come true.
Want to wow your friends and family at your annual holiday party?
Make up a pot of this pasta and watch as everyone devours it!
I hesitate to say when something is the best recipe I’ve ever made (because there are several that are my favorite!), but this one pot pasta is possibly the greatest dish that I have ever made or tasted!
Ultra creamy, cheesy, and has a huge depth of flavor.
And it’s made in just one pot (!!!)
This would be the perfect fall dish to serve your family and friends.
I used Barilla® penne, sweet potato, spinach, fresh garlic and onion, and a homemade cream sauce to bring all of the flavors together.
On busy nights when I’m craving creamy, cheesy pasta, I turn to something easy to make and easy to cleanup.
Something delicious like this Creamy One Pot Sweet Potato and Spinach Pasta!
My husband RAVED about this pasta. He told me we should sell the recipe to Olive Garden (it’s that good.)
We had it leftover the next day and I swear it tasted even better.
Some pastas taste best fresh, but this just keeps getting more delicious as it sits and the noodles marinate in that delicious ultra creamy heavenly sauce!
Pick up a box of Barilla penne and make this for your next holiday get together!
