Recipe Courtesy of:

Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 20 min | Serves: 6


  • 8 oz. Tasteful Selections® petite sweet potatoes, cubed or sliced
  • ½ lb. whole wheat elbow or fusilli pasta
  • ¾ c. milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. dried mustard
  • 1 ½ c. packed shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp. butter, optional


Boil the pasta and cook until al dente; drain and set aside. Cook the sweet potatoes in a pot of boiling water until tender. For the sauce, put the cooked sweet potatoes, milk, salt, garlic powder and dried mustard in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer the sauce back to the pan used to cook the pasta. Add the cheese and butter, if desired, and cook over medium-low heat until the cheese melts. Return the pasta to the pot and stir. If the sauce seems too thick, add more milk. Add salt, to taste.
