Spaghetti with Sweet Potato Noodles

There's a new little gadget I want...the Spiralizer. It makes veggies into noodles so you can still enjoy dishes but without the grains. The other awesome thing about it is you really can't tell a difference in taste/texture. With these sweet potato noodles I just used a julienne peeler which did a siimlar effect. 

But seriously, this was good. The other great (better than great) thing about using a vegetable in place of a noodle is how many more vitamins/minerals and fiber you're getting. You are replacing an empty calorie with loads of good calories! I'm definitely doing this all the time now. 

Sweet Potato Noodle Spaghetti (serves 2-4)
1 Large Sweet Potato peeled

Sauce (will serve 4-6 people):
15 oz plain tomato sauce
15 oz stewed tomatoes
½ pound grass fed hamburger
6 oz tomato paste
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp chili powder
3 tbsp parmesan cheese
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion powder or ¼ minced fresh onion
1 tsp oregano 
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1. Combine all sauce ingredients into a pot. Simmer 1 hour minimum (can simmer all day if needed) and stir periodically.
2. Take your peeled sweet potato and use a juilienne peeler or Spiralizer to slice into longer, pasta like noddles. You can grate it anyway you like, really. 
3. Steam the sweet potato (sliced) until soft and you'll notice a color change (15 minutes).
4. Put on plate and top with your spaghetti sauce. Serve with salad and/or vegetables!
