Brown Butter Pasta with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts-whole wheat pasta with sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, dried cranberries, feta cheese, pecans, and a simple brown butter sauce. This is the perfect pasta dish for fall!
On Monday, I shared my new favorite fall salad. Today, I am sharing my new favorite fall pasta dish. This Brown Butter Pasta with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts is a winner! The words brown butter should have already told you that though:)
This pasta dish has all of my favorite fall ingredients: sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, dried cranberries, pecans, and feta cheese. The simple brown butter sauce brings all of the flavors together to create one amazing meal!
I didn’t know what to call this pasta dish because I love everything about it. I didn’t want to leave anything out of the title, but it got too long so I only invited brown butter, sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts to the title party. I hope the rest of the ingredients aren’t mad at me. They are still a special part of the pasta dish!
I roasted the sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts with a little red onion to bring out the best flavor. I love roasting veggies because it is so easy! I love putting my oven to work.
For the pasta, I used DeLallo’s Organic Whole Wheat Fussili. I love using whole wheat pasta for this dish because it is wholesome, filling, and I love the slight nutty flavor. You can use any pasta shape you want, but I love the squiggly Fussili noodles! Caleb likes eating them too:)
When the pasta is done cooking, I pour brown butter over the pasta and stir in the roasted vegetables. The brown butter sauce is AH-MAZING! So easy too! Finally, I add dried cranberries, pecans, and feta cheese. I love the hint of sweetness from the cranberries, the crunch from the pecans, and the creaminess of the feta cheese. This pasta dish has it ALL! It is the perfect fall pasta dish!
If you don’t have any dinner plans for tonight, you do now, this Brown Butter Pasta with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts is calling your name! It would also be a great side dish to your Thanksgiving feast! Enjoy!
