Sweet And Smoky Zoodles

I wanted something fresh, full of so many flavors, and different from the usual.  Oh, and I wanted it to be easy.  Ha!  That wasn’t asking to much was it?  Sure wasn’t, because it all came together in this tasty dish.  It was delicious!  Just a huge mix up of flavors.  The sweet potato brings an element of sweetness.  The bacon brings the smoky, bacony flavor we all know and love.  The sausage (I used Aidells Chicken and Apple) brings a sweet and smoky medley of flavors.  The zucchini gives it that freshness.  It all comes together in a beautiful harmony of flavor.

Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato, chopped into small cubes

2 slices of bacon, chopped into small pieces (check ingredients to be sure it fits your dietary parameters)

2 small sausages, chopped into bite-size pieces (once again, check ingredients)

1 clove of garlic, finely chopped

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 zucchini, zoodled or chopped into bite size pieces

Directions:  In a skillet, on medium heat, cook sweet potato, bacon, sausage, and garlic in olive oil.  You can go ahead and throw it all in at the same time.  Allow to cook until the sweet potato pieces are soft enough to have a fork pierce them with ease.  This can take up to 10 minutes, depending on how small you cut them.  Stir occasionally to cook evenly.  Once the sweet potatoes are cooked through, everything else should be, as well (the sweet potatoes take the longest).  Go ahead and turn off the heat, completely.  Immediately, add the zucchini and toss with the sweet potato, sausage, and bacon.  Allow the zucchini to absorb the heat.  If you leave the stove on and cook the zucchini it becomes a little soupy.  You want to avoid that, so make sure you turn it off before adding the zucchini.
