Turkey & Pasta with Sweet Potato Cream Sauce – Total Elimination Diet

I LOVE pasta. Pasta and carbs make the world go round.  I’ve missed them while on the Total Elimination Diet mostly because I can’t figure out what sauces to use on them.  I’ve used straight olive oil and also the Cream of…”Whatever” Soup but that gets boring after a while.  This sweet potato cream sauce was a great way to change it up while staying Total Elimination Diet compliant.

Turkey & Pasta

INGREDIETNS
• 8 ounces Brown Rice Pasta
• 8 ounces of turkey, diced or ground turkey

INSTRUCTIONS
1) Cook pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside.
2) Place the diced turkey into pan and cover with sweet potato cream sauce (see recipe below). Stir to combine. Simmer for 3-5 minutes.
3) Add pasta to pot.  Stir to combine. Simmer for another 3-5 minutes if desired.
