Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon & Sage

Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon & Sage is a perfect Fall time meal. This dish is full of flavour and is the perfect lunch or dinner.


There’s something about fall time that makes me want to cook and bake like crazy. It must be the coziness that fills the house when something is in the oven or on the stove, and the scents that fill the house when it’s cooking. 

I’ve got a huge list of recipes that I want to make and I pretty much want to just put them on hold so I can do my Fall baking before Fall is over. Because you know what it’s like. Time just disappears and before you know it, it’s Christmas. 

Speaking of Christmas I feel like I’m on the ball. I have a few gifts purchased….woot woot!!! So if you’re a procrastinator (I usually am), jump on the band wagon and start buying things here and there. You won’t be sorry.

For now though, back to Fall. Here’s a cozy and yummy dish using sweet potatoes…or yams…whatever the heck you call them. I never can tell the difference…ha.

  8. Dish out on pasta plates and sprinkle with pine nuts.
