So did I tell you that my husband just got Lasik?

He had the procedure done about a week and a half ago and has loved every second of it. Although he has said that he has reached for his glasses a couple of times in the morning and then realizes he doesn’t need them anymore. 🙂

One of the things I didn’t realize about Lasik is the your loved one can watch the entire procedure through a window.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to watch at first, but decided at the last minute. Why not? If it too much for me I can just sit back down.

I’m so glad I did. That kind of stuff intrigues me, and it was interesting to see how they make the first cut to open up the cornea before they perform the actual laser correcting procedure.

The amazing thing was that it literally only takes 4 minutes per eye for the entire procedure and he was good to go later that night!

Which was good because I  planning on making these delicious Sweet Potato Noodles with Sage Brown Butter Sauce that night and I wanted him to SEE it and enjoy eating it.

I had been looking for another excuse to use my spiralizer and was kinda over using it just for zucchini, so I branched out and tried it with sweet potatoes and so glad I did.

One word … Whoa!

You have to saute the sweet potatoes a little longer than you would zucchini noodles because sweet potatoes themselves are a little harder but the flavors in this dish from the brown butter… the fresh sage, the nutmeg, salty bacon, and the pecans is just amazing!

This was actually my first time making brown butter sauce.. and I was kinda nervous. I wasn’t sure if you could go past the brown butter phase from it being golden brown to burning it. So I was hovering the saucepan like a hawk.

It was actually easier than I thought it was and tasted absolutely glorious with all the other flavors.

Now because my husband had just had Lasik the day I made these Sweet Potato Noodles we had some extra company coming in to check on him, namely his parents. 🙂 Which meant that we had extra taste testers… they both approved and went back for seconds.

Soo… I’m thinking you need to try this! Asap!

  1. Oh my gosh, I HAVE to get a spiralizer! This dinner is totally right up my alley!!

    One of my friends got Lasik last year and said it was the best thing she’s ever done. I’ve been toying with the idea for months, but I’m not quite there yet. Maybe next year.

    1. Yes you do! You will love it Kelli, it is a great way to put extra veggies in your diet!

      You definitely should think about lasik, its a great option and literally takes only 4 minutes per eye, its so quick and then you can see right away!

        I have a spiralizer, but the sweet potatoes are so hard, I can’t get them to work. Do I need to partially cook them for 5 minutes or so to make this easier?

        1. Hmmm… nope. You should be able to push them through. If you cook them a big beforehand they might end up soggy on the other end. Maybe try a small skinny potato … and put your back into it. hehe I hope you get it because this dish is awesome!

    OMGosh! This looks amazing! My brother-in-law has been making brown butter and sage over angel hair pasta for years. I’m going to try this very soon. I have a spiral slicer that I have only used with zucchini. I am VERY excited to try something else. I had no Idea you could do sweet potatoes with them. But mine is different than yours. Much smaller and hand held. Like this one
    Thanks so much! jb

    1. Oh… over angel hair pasta sounds sooo good right now!

      Can’t wait to hear what you think of this one, the world of spiralizer recipes is limitless and DE-licous! 🙂
