I made this meal one night using all the leftovers in my fridge & what sounded good together and this is now ONE OF MY FAVORITES 🙌 this meal goes to show that you can get really creative with the last end of your groceries. No joke, this is my new favorite meal.


This meal has it all (Stephan from SNL voice). Sweet potato noodles, antioxidants from pomegranate seeds, rich flavor and protein from Italian sausage, and vitamins/minerals from kale.

While pasta is boiling, in the same medium skillet you cooked the Italian sausage in, saute sweet potato noodles and kale for 5-6 minutes
Once all ingredients are cooked, mix pasta, sweet potato noodles, sausage, and kale in a medium bowl. Mix in Vodka sauce to desired tasting
Optional: top bowls with pomegranate seeds and parmesan

Tips

  • Pomegranate seeds are optional but add a nice crunch to meal
  • Feel free to replace Vodka sauce with another pasta sauce of your choosing. This meal is also good with alfredo sauce but red sauce goes best with these ingredients
