These sweet potato "noodles" are not only lower in carbs than traditional pasta, they also pack a nice dose of vitamins into the dish. This would be a great sneaky way to get the kids to eat more veggies, and I love the bright orange color! I did not have any sesame oil on hand, but I keep a jar of sesame tahini in the fridge that I always use to whip up a batch of hummus. This worked just fine for the nutty sauce.
