    Yum, looks delicious! I’ve been using cauliflower in place of half the noodles in my mac and cheese all winter, I’m going to have to try this variation.

  23. MS2 says:

    Cool that you are on his blog! Awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Ooh yum, I love this idea! I’ve bookmarked about a million pumpkin mac and cheese recipes that for some reason I always forget to try, so maybe I’ll have to try sweet potato instead!

  25. This looks great, Joanne! I love chili mac ๐Ÿ™‚ Adding sweet potatoes is such a smart way to healthify it.

  26. Michelle says:

    Sweet & spicy…love it!

  27. Um, this looks incredible!!! So creamy and comforting!

  28. Nicole, RD says:

    Drool. Heading over for the recipe!

  29. Hannah says:

    Swimsuit season is not something that falls on my calendar! Even so, this sounds like a really creative and tasty twist on the classic mac. Sweet potatoes and spice always seem to go so well together in just about any dish.

  30. Wow, this dish is FILLED with tons of goodies. And I love that you included the light version, although I’m not sure if I’ll abide by it. I’ll just do a double workout at the gym ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Katie says:

    What an interesting combination of flavors! I love that you were able to incorporate the soy meat into the dish to get a little more protein in. That’s one of my biggest problems when I make a pasta dish.

  32. Pam says:

    Now that looks comforting without all the guilt!!

  33. beti says:

    I’m realy looking forward to eat this, it looks great but healthy

  34. megcjones says:

    ooh yum! what a great idea!

  35. Blond Duck says:

    I was just thinking I wanted mac and cheese!

  36. That Girl says:

    We had mac and cheese Monday night – but it was certainly not healthy!

  37. sounds yum! and tonight I am making a version of cassoulet inspired by you ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. katiez says:

    I love sweet potatoes, but lately the only ones I can find are monsters – would feed the two of us for a week. Could make this and freeze it…. As to swimsuits….

  39. I applaud wholeheartedly the marriage of monterey jack and chorizo!

  40. Kerstin says:

    Great idea Joanne, looks delish!

  41. Ginger says:

    this was absolutely decadent. next time I am doubling the recipe!

    cooked the SPs in the microwave and skipped the chipotle so it wouldn’t be too spicy for the baby.
