Ingredients

Sauce

* 1 cup non-dairy milk
* 1/2 cup sweet potato, peeled
* 2 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
* 2 tbsp cashews
* 2 tbsp yellow onion
* 1 tbsp lemon juice
* 1 garlic clove
* 1 tsp miso paste
* 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
* 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
* 1/4 tsp Himalayan rock salt

Add-ins

* 3 cups uncooked pasta -- I used rice pasta shells
* 8 strips pork bacon
* 2 organic eggs
* 2 green onions, diced or 2 tbsp freeze dried chives

Topping

* 1/2 cup almond meal
* 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
* 1/2 tsp basil
* 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

Directions

  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.
