Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (160 votes)

Here's a way to use the “power vegetables” sweet potato and red bell pepper in a satisfying vegetarian pasta dish full of fresh herbs and creamy goat cheese. Any fresh herbs you have on hand, like basil, oregano, sorrel or chives, can be substituted for the tarragon. Serve with a garden salad.

"The flavors were good, but the texture is strange. I would've much preferred roasted sweet potatoes and bell peppers. The shredding of the sweet potatoes is a lot of work for an odd result. "

This is a regular in our household rotation. So simple to make and very filling. I make it just as the recipe is written and it has never let me down. My husband is a big meat eater and he does not mind eating this dish. I usually serve this with some type of green salad.


I made this dish as is, except I used parmesan cheese instead of goat cheese. It had a lot of taste- I didn't need to add anything extra. I will be making it again!


I just made this for the first time, and it was great! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used parmesan cheese instead of goat cheese. I am not normally a fan of bell peppers but thought the pepper taste was mild and delicious. I will definitely be making this again!


With a little modification, this recipe is great. It definitely needs a little zip. I like to add some red pepper flakes. Sometimes I'll put in jalepeno chicken sausage which adds nice texture and spice. Size of the sweet potato is important! A small one goes a long way!


I just made this for the second time. The first time it was a bit bland, so this time I added 2 extra cloves of garlic and nearly doubled the tomatoes. Also, last time my sweet potato was too large, so I selected a smaller one this time. I only had parsley, so I added 3 generous tablespoons of that, plus an extra splash of lemon juice. It was much more flavorful by just adding extras of what was called for in the recipe.
