Delicious Sweet Potato Fall Pasta Dish (with Salmon Option)
This savory pasta dish has easily become our latest dinner obsession (and for good reason).
Loaded with pan-seared Brussels sprouts, tender sweet potatoes, fresh spinach, cranberries and earthy, yet slightly peppery sage, this quick and easy pasta recipe is fast, flavorful and family-friendly! It has all of the classic fall flavors in each delicious bite.
It’s no secret that we LOVE pasta, especially when it’s loaded with veggies. There’s just something so cozy and comfy about it! Serve this pasta dish as a side, entree, or (our personal favorite) paired with protein-packed salmon that’s been baked in a foil pack (hello, easy dinner!).
Serving your pasta with salmon
It’s as simple as prepping your salmon ahead (see notes section for our top tips) and tossing it in the oven while you make your pasta. At the very end, pull your salmon out, plate your pasta, top with a little feta cheese and enjoy!
How to shop for the best ingredients
- Choose feta cheese that’s made with simple ingredients such as milk, cream, salt, enzymes and active cultures.
- Choose WHOLE grain pasta (avoid enriched white pasta).
- Avoid farm-raised salmon, especially with added coloring. Shop for wild-caught salmon instead.
Top tips for prepping ahead (on your food prep day or the night before)
Looking for ways to reduce time in the kitchen and simplify healthy eating? Pre-chopping, cutting or cooking ingredients really helps to reduce stress and simplify dinner on busy weeknights.
- Chop your Brussels sprouts, onion, garlic (if you’re using fresh) and sweet potatoes.
- Wash and chop sage.
