Sweet Potato Noodle Shrimp Puttanesca

Sweet Potato Noodle Shrimp Puttanesca

You know, it’s tough naming these recipes. Sometimes, I just don’t know where to enter in the spiralized vegetable. Like here, should it be “Shrimp Puttanesca with Sweet Potato Noodles” or should it be “Shrimp Sweet Potato Noodle Puttanesca” or even, “Shrimp Puttanesca Sweet Potato Pasta” and just omit the “noodle” part completely?

After a few minutes of thinking, I just stuck it in front. Heck, at least it’ll help when people Google “sweet potato noodles,” hopefully I’ll pop right up!

As you might know, Danielle from Against All Grain asked me to be a featured guest blogger on her blog. Besides being totally honored, I’m totally excited to be able to share the recipes with her followers, who might have autoimmune diseases or issues that restrict them from eating gluten. If I can help change one person’s life in a positive way, that’s a good day.

With this second recipe, I wanted to keep it seasonal. Even though she’s lucky enough to live in San Francisco where fresh veggies are in abundance pretty much year-round, I live in cold New Jersey and am loving the huge sweet potatoes that are perfect for spiralizing.

I mean, would you wear flip flops in the middle of winter? Then why eat summer veggies in the winter? Oh wait, I’m obsessed with zucchini noodles, so I guess I’m that person wearing white pants after Labor Day. Oopsy.

I’m all about puttanesca – it’s so easy and the scents of this sauce make your mouth water while you’re in your kitchen. The aromas are so beautiful you may start singing Italian opera music to just, ya know, set the mood.

The shrimp adds a lean protein and the sweet potato noodles give that hint of sweetness that we all love by now in our noodles. The puttanesca is really magical, but you know what’s great? It’s a one pot recipe! I hate cleaning, so this is a dream.

To start cooking, head on over to Against All Grain for the recipe.

Who loves recipes that only take one pot to make? Aside from me, of course.

  1. Absolutely stunning photos, Ali! I pinned it to make soon!

  2. This looks fantastic! I’ve only ever had store bought sweet potato noodles but I am totally inspiralized ( had to!) to make my own. Heading to grab this recipe!

  3. That is a plate of gorgeousness! Love the idea of sweet potato noodles!

  4. I love everything about this dish! Now how to get it through the screen and into my belly…

  5. You must always call them noodles. After all there are noodles out their made of many different ingredients, like quinoa, rice, etc. Great looking recipe. I had sweet potato noodles last night. My first spiraling event. What fun and how great they are. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. This recipe is delicious! Pasta puttanesca was already one of my favorites and the sweet potato noodles jut make it even more flavorful. My boyfriend said he would be more than happy to eat it (and help cook it) every week! The sauce is delicious – it was really easy to make more of it, store it, and super quick for leftovers!

  7. This looks amazing! I’ve tried a number of your recipes and have even converted my “real pasta only” BF! Do you happen to have the nutritional info?

    Thanks so much.

  8. Made this last night for my pescetarian dairy-free gluten-free friend and my always ravenous husband. (Hard to cook for both of them in one meal). It was FANTASTIC. This may be the 7th recipe I have made from your blog, Ali. Every single one has been healthy and flavorful. Keep inspiralizing me!

  9. This was easy and delicious, even without the olives!!!
