    * 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
  1. Add-ins
  1. * 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
  1. Topping

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.

Makes 4- 6 servings.
