Creamy Sweet Potato Pasta

Weeknights can be busy, and when the chill of fall and winter hits, you want something quick and comforting for dinner!  This creamy sweet potato pasta is so easy to make and so good!  It is actually healthy too, with no oil, plenty of sweet potato, and plenty of fiber from the whole wheat pasta.  Although it is creamy, it contains no dairy, since it gets its richness from raw cashew butter!  Next time you are in the mood for some healthy comfort food, give this a try!
