Reviews for Rigatoni with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
"Usually my family loves our sweet potatoes sweet instead of savory, but this recipe is great! In my husband's words it's "strangely delicious." A filling and tasty meal!"
"I forgot to put the onions in the oven so I just sauted some mushrooms and threw those in there. Yummy and super quick!"
"substituted ricotta for cream and it worked quite well. delicious!"
"Yummy! I used 8 oz of Wagon Wheel pasta instead, because that's what I had. I also used kosher salt for roasting the sweet potatoes (which took 40 minutes, not 25). Very yummy and worth the time."
