Creamy Bacon/Tomato “Pasta”

pasta with bacon

This is perfect for when you’re craving a big bowl of pasta, like I do often. It’s also a good carb-loaded meal for post-workout. I try to do sweet potato noodles once or twice a week to get these carbs in.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, spiralized
  • 10 strips bacon- baked in the oven at 375 until crispy, and chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 tsp basil
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 can coconut cream (Trader Joe’s)

Heat 1/2 tbsp coconut oil in a large pot over med-high heat and add the noodles. Stir the noodles frequently for about 10 minutes and then add the other 1/2 tbsp coconut oil and do the same for another 10 minutes on medium, or until all the noodles are tender but not completely limp. Add the 3/4 can coconut cream, dry seasonings, bacon, and tomato to the noodles. Stir and mix thoroughly on low heat for another 5 minutes. There you go!
