Ingredients
  1. 1 red bell pepper
  2. 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  3. 1/2 to 3/4 medium-sized onion
  4. 1 teaspoon canola oil
  5. 3 large cloves garlic, chopped
  6. 1 cup (225ml) unsweetened soy milk
  7. 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 
(optional)
  8. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  10. 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  11. 1/2 box spaghetti
  12. Fresh basil, chopped, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Poke a few holes in the red pepper and roast for about 30 minutes. While the pepper is roasting, peel and cube the sweet potato. Roast the sweet potato at the same temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. While the other vegetables are roasting, chop the onion. Coat a skillet with the oil and place over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent. When the onion has started to brown, add the chopped garlic cloves and cook an additional 30 seconds.
  3. Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  4. When the pepper is roasted and cool enough to handle, take the skin off and remove the seeds.
  5. Blend together the pepper, sweet potato, onion and garlic until smooth, and drain the pasta.
  6. Mix the sauce into the pasta, top with fresh basil and serve.
