#SundaySupper: Fall Flavors

It is officially Autumn and to celebrate the Sunday Supper crew has assembled a menu of Fall flavors. If you are looking for all things pumpkin, apple, and sweet potato scroll on past my recipe for a wonderful collection of Autumn inspired dishes. Thank you to the Sunday Supper Movement for hosting today’s event.

Today’s Sunday Supper is a fun one for me because my newest recruit to the Sunday Supper family is posting her first recipe with us today -Tara, of Tara’s Multicultural Table! I have been encouraging Tara to join this group since my first Sunday back in February. Of course, the birth of her second child (my beautiful Goddaughter!) was a valid excuse to stay away from the extra blogging commitment. I’m sure my Sunday Supper participation will be on a slight decline come November when I, too, add “mother of two” to my resume.

Not only am I excited that Tara’s joining Sunday Supper today, but when this event was announced over a month ago I knew exactly what I’d be sharing. One of Tara’s recipes – that I modified to accommodate my allergies.

Tara posted a recipe for Pumpkin Alfredo two years ago and my mouth has always watered looking at it. But, I can’t have pumpkin. I finally decided to make it with sweet potato, instead. We first ate this Sweet Potato Alfredo back in March on a bare fridge/pantry night. I served it with egg noodles and some sliced smoked pork sausage. That’s the version pictured below. I have also served this with ground Italian sausage and fettuccine.

Sweet Potato Alfredo Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp butter or olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 C chicken stock
  • 1/2 C sweet potato puree
  • 1 1/4 C heavy cream
  • 1/4 C shredded Parmesan cheese

Steps:

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, saute garlic in olive oil until fragrant. Add in the chicken stock and scrape the bottom of the pan if needed. Add the sweet potato puree and heavy cream, whisking until smooth. Bring to a gentle boil. Melt in Parmesan. Season to taste with S+P.
  2. Serve over cooked pasta (tortellini, ravioli, linguine, etc). Add cooked meats if desired (sausage, chicken, etc). Note: reserve some pasta cooking water if sauce gets too thick.

  1. Ooh this sweet potato sauce sounds delicious. I’m trying to incorporate a couple of meat free meals into our weekly menu and this recipe is perfect. I will also pop over to Tara’s site and see what she is making. Thanks for sharing such a yummy recipe. Sammie

  2. Thanks for talking me into joining! Your version looks delicious. I have a couple of extra sweet potatoes. May have to make it this week to sneak Evan a little extra veggies.
