Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon and Sage

The flavors in this dish are perfect for the holiday season, and this recipe is also ideal for a quick, satisfying weeknight dinner.  Simply sear a couple of steaks and enjoy a nutritious, filling meal in less than half an hour.

Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon and Sage 

(adapted from Veggie Noodle Co.'s recipe found here)

1 container / 10-12 ounces sweet potato noodles

2 tablespoons avocado oil (or any healthy fat that's safe for high temp cooking)

4-5 slices cooked, thick-cut bacon, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage

1/4 cup chopped pecans

salt and pepper

Sauté sweet potato noodles in avocado oil until cooked but still firm.  Add the chopped sage and cook for another 1-2 minutes.  Combine with bacon and pecans and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Enjoy!
