If you loved the butternut squash lasagna, you’ll dig this one too. I am always drawn to the recipes that make me think huh…that’s an interesting combination.
The rules are simple. Bake a sweet potato. Add some sauce. Add some meat. Add some vegetables. Bake it again. Grab a fork. Eat it up.
As mentioned in the recipe, oven roasted sweet potatoes are best. Sweeter flavor. I agree with that. However, to expidite the cooking process, I used a baked potato bag for the microwave. Genius. I love that thing.
Oftentimes I make my own meat and tomato sauce, but this time I decided to “cheat” and use store bought. I found some really good pizza sauce, no sugar added, just tomatoes and spices. As far as toppings, I browned a combination of beef/sausage. For veggies, I sauteed some mushrooms, onions, peppers, and garlic. I pretty much followed the recipe. Added a few sliced olives on top as well as a little parmesan cheese. I know, PALEO POLICE. Note: watch out for the lid of the olive can…there WILL be sharp edges if you don’t have a fancy can opener. Also, if you slice the side of your thumb, there WILL be blood. Just throwing that out there.
I also made a sweet potato pizza for my husband. For his I added sauce, beef/sausage mixture, pepperoni, and cheese. I sent it to work with him last night. He has not given me a review on it yet. I’m sure he loved it.
