  1. Preheat oven to 400F and oil a 4 cup casserole dish with coconut oil. Prepare pasta as per package instructions. Be sure to leave it al dente.
  2. To make the sauce: Peel the sweet potato, stab with fork a couple of times, and place in the microwave on 'potato' setting. Meanwhile, combine all sauce ingredients in a blender. Add cooked sweet potato, and blend until smooth.
  3. Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large frying pan, cooking for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan, dab with paper towel and cut into bits. Set aside
  4. To make topping: combine all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Whip eggs with hand held mixer until frothy. In a large bowl, combine cooked pasta, prepared sauce, bacon bits, frothed eggs, and green onions/chives. Stir to combine.
  6. Drop mixture into prepared casserole dish and top with topping.
  7. Cook in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
