I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

One-Pot Sweet Potato Linguini

Love these one-pot pasta dishes!
Lots of flavour in this one.

1 medium sweet potato
1/4 cup 10 % cream (or more)

450 g linguini
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups vegetable broth
1 cup white wine
2 tbsps olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

2 oz goat cheese
12-15 basil leaves
extra 1/4 - 1/2 cup 10% cream

Microwave the sweet potato until tender, scoop out the flesh and purée it along with 1/4 cup of cream.
You'll have about 1 cup purée.
It was this thick when I used it.  Next time I would probably use more cream here to make it less thick.

In a large pot add the purée to the next 11 ingredients up to and including the pepper.  Yes the linguini goes in here.
I broke mine in half to fit in the pot.
Bring everything to a boil. Stir well making sure the linguini doesn't stick to itself. Once it all comes to a boil reduce heat to medium and keep on stirring, making sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. Continue cooking and stirring for 9 minutes. Check to see that your pasta is cooked then remove from heat. 
Cut the goat cheese into chunks
and stir into the hot pasta. Let sit for a couple of minutes then stir to incorporate the cheese.
You might want to add an extra 1/4 to 1/2 cup more cream depending on your preferences for creaminess.
Serve topped with basil leaves and parmesan cheese.
Serves 4
