Made with



  • 1 box Dreamfields Rotini
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 8 ounces kale stems and ribs removed, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese part-skim
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • salt and pepper (optional)


  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Cook sweet potatoes, stirring and turning pieces occasionally, until just barely tender (about 10-13 minutes).
  2. While sweet potatoes are cooking, begin cooking pasta, according to package directions. Drain and keep warm. Before draining, reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  3. When sweet potatoes are just barely tender, add garlic and red pepper flakes to them. Add kale to sweet potatoes and cook until bright green and wilted. Season mixture with salt and pepper, if desired. Remove from heat.
  4. Toss pasta with sweet potato mixture. Add dollops of ricotta then stir carefully into pasta mixture. Add just enough reserved pasta water to mixture to loosen ricotta and moisten pasta (start with about 1/4 cup and add more if necessary). Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve.
