Sweet potato Pasta - Creamy Vegan sweet potato pasta - Easy Dinner meal - Kids Friendly recipe

My kids are so found of Pasta. I almost make it every other day. I would like to incorporate some vegetables (esp those that they are not so fancy about) as base Sauce for Pasta. Sweet potato I love this mildly sweet vegetable however my kids are not a big fan of it esp if I make boiled one. However they are ok with Sweet Potato Oven baked Fry. I wanted to try something else with it. Including this as part of their favourite dish may not be bad idea. Actually My son kept asking about what I have added to the sauce it is very diff and tasty. I told him at the end of the meal. He was so surprised!
