Sweet Potato & Red Pepper Pasta

September/October 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (179 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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. "

Liked this a lot. I made it practically as written except I used fresh rosemary instead of the tarragon, and didn't use as much water as it called for (didn't seem to need it). I thought it had a lot of flavor, and my non-vegetarian husband loved it too.

I made this as is, with the exception of using the lemon zest from the lemon I used for juice. I found it so flavorful. Sweet, and savory. One of the best vegetarian meals I've had in a long time!

I was so excited to make this, but I was very disappointed. It had no flavor, I ended up throwing it all away. The goat cheese I used gave it a very weird taste, so it might have been the problem.

I'm sure the earlier reviewer meant to say that she substitute the basil for the tarragon and white cheddar for the goat cheese, because the recipe calls for tarragon and goat cheese... so she must have used basil and white cheddar as the substitutes, not the other way around.

This was really quite good, if in need of a bit more salt and pepper. It came together pretty quickly and easily. I would make it again.
