I wasn’t sure sweet potatoes would go well with pasta and kielbasa, but the earthy tuber complements the slightly smoky Polish sausage. You can add more cheese or sausage to suit your taste.—Rickey Madden, Clinton, South Carolina

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked spiral pasta
  • 8 ounces smoked sausage, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage, sweet potatoes, green pepper and onion in oil over medium heat for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain.
  2. Add the tomatoes, cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; remove from the heat. Drain pasta; stir into sausage mixture. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
