If you love turkey bolognese and sweet potatoes, you’re going to love this easy one pan meal. I’ve combined my popular turkey bolognese sauce with spiralized sweet potatoes in one pan, all topped with melted mozzarella cheese, for a flavorful, protein and vegetable packed meal that’s easy to clean up.

Even the pickiest of eaters will love this dish – and the best part? The ingredients are minimal and ones you may already have in your kitchen. If you want to make this again and again but want to switch it up, try using ground beef for the bolognese or even chicken.

And if you notice that your spiralized sweet potato noodles break up when they’re cooked in the sauce, that’s okay – it’s actually easier to eat that way and it still tastes just as good, trust me!

Every scoopful has a little bit of gooey mozzarella cheese, for just enough cheesiness! This healthy and easy one pan meal will become a new weeknight favorite, quickly!

Love recipes like this with some pre-made ingredients! less intimidating and easy. I can apply this for whole30 too without Cheese and a whole-30 pasta sauce (like Raos or TJ's Garlic!)
Ali Maffucci says:
Thanks for the feedback, Hillary!
Lisa says:
What’s blade D? I have the kitchenaid attachment that spiralizes?
Diane Mandile says:
Choose whichever blade makes medium noodles? They should look sort of the size of linguine probably.
Carly Glazer says:
Blade D is going to be the thinnest (spaghetti) blade!
Diane Mandile says:
I am planning to make this tonight. I have a vegetarian in the family so I will substitute mushrooms for the turkey. I know it will still be very tasty.
Inese says:
At which point would you freeze it?
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Inese! We would probably freeze this before adding the cheese!
Diane C says:
This looks so delicious. What is the best way to warm up the leftovers without the sweet potatoes becoming mushy with extra cooking. Would it be best in oven or in a frying pan on the stovetop, what temperature and how long? Thanks

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

directions⁣
in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
