Sweet Potato

Sweet Potato "Spaghetti" Casserole

There’s nothing I love more than homemade spaghetti and meatballs! But let’s face it, my stomach doesn’t always enjoy the bloat afterwards! That’s why I love this healthy, but tasty, alternative. Sweet potatoes are a great source of complex carbohydrates, which means less sugar, more nutrients, and a meal that will keep you feeling full longer than with traditional noodles.

The yellow sweet potato is slightly firmer than its cousin, the orange yam, so you’ll notice a little bit of a crunchy texture paired with the warm, ground meat. Top with a gluten-free, no sugar added marinara sauce for a gluten-free and paleo-friendly meal the whole family will love!

Ingredients
  • 1 Large Sweet Potato
  • ½ Sweet Onion
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic, minced
  • ½ Cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • ½ Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Pound Ground Chicken
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Cup Marinara Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil, split
Steps to Prepare
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Peel sweet potato and cut off both ends, creating a flat edge. Make sure the potato is thin enough to fit through the Veggie Bullet Spiralizer chute. Spiralize using the Veggie Bullet into a medium size bowl and set aside.
  3. Shred a block of mozzarella into a small bowl using the Veggie Bullet's Shredding Blade and set aside.
  4. Quarter cherry tomatoes using a paring knife if not already done.
  5. Cut onion in half, remove outer layer, and slice using the Veggie Bullet's Slicer Blade into a medium size bowl.
  6. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and sliced onion to the pan and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Add ground chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, breaking the ground chicken into pieces and cooking until no longer pink.
  8. Transfer the cooked meat to an 8x8 oven-safe casserole dish.
  9. In the same cooking pan over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook spiralized sweet potato for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender.
  10. Transfer the cooked potatoes to the casserole dish, layering the "noodles" evenly on top of the meat.
  11. Top with fresh marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella, and tomatoes and bake for 10 minutes.
  12. Remove from the oven, and let it sit out for 2 to 3 minutes before digging in.
  13. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. Don't have a Veggie Bullet? You can use a hand spiralizer to spiralize your fruits and veggies, a food processor to shred and chop, or a knife and cutting board to slice. Just expect to add additional prep time and use more counter space.
