3-Cheese Spaghetti Alfredo Pesto... with some other stuff

So I was going to be filmed for a short cooking clip and couldn't decide what I wanted to cook. I had a lot of ideas at once and everything sounded good so I ended up mixing everything together, including sautéed sweet potatoes with onions. Don't be scared, it's delicious; this bowl below was full and I finished it clean


  • 1 1/2 lb. Ground beef or turkey
  • 1 pack Spaghetti
  • Red pasta sauce of choice
  • 2  Red Peppers
  • 1 1/2 Onions
  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup 2 other cheeses, I used Mediterranean Herb Gouda and a Romano Parmesan
  • 8 oz. Whipping Cream
  • 1 tbsp Basil
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Butter, Margarine, or oil
First start by taking out everything your going to need, makes it a LOT easier. so you'll need a large frying pan for the meat, a large pot for the water, and 2 medium pots for the sauce and veggies, one of which you can turn on low to medium heat. I know a lot of pots and pans, but it's worth it trust me. Ok now get a large cutting board, wash and dry the sweet potato and chop into thinnish, whatever you can do size (I had some trouble cutting). Throw those on the medium pot with some butter. Chop up the onion and throw that in after. Continue stirring every couple minutes. Next fill the large pot with water and let boil. Get the meat in the large pan on low to medium heat and add seasonings as you please. Continue stirring that as well. Now add brown sugar to the potatoes and onions. Your not in the circus yet, wash and dry the peppers and chop up. Get that in the last pot with some butter. Chop up the garlic and add that along with the basil. Go ahead and add the pasta into the water about now. If meat is about done, pour the heavy whipping cream in and add the parmesan and flour. Pour the red sauce over the red peppers and garlic and add the rest of the cheese. Strain pasta and mix everything together. Use salt and pepper to season and Enjoy!
