Sweet Potato Pasta

2 cups of whole wheat pasta (i.e. Rotini, Penne)
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 sweet potato, peeled, quartered and sliced into 1/4" slices
1 cup of broccoli florets
1 cup mushrooms, quartered
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp of soy sauce
1/4 tsp of dried thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper

In a large saucepan of boiling water, add noodles and garlic. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add sweet potatoes and continue cooking for 4 minutes. Add broccoli and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes or until all veggies are tender. Drain well. Place in bowl. Toss with cheese, soy sauce, thyme and pepper until cheese melts. Serve immediately.


This is a yummy recipe. A friend of mine posted it on her blog a long
time ago and I've been making ever since. It's easy, pretty quick and a
little different than most of the pasta dishes I've made. I always seem to
add more broccoli and mushrooms than it calls for...more veggies the merrier
