The ingredients needed were minimal. Wouldn’t you know I had all of the items on hand except for dried parsley. I had one better, I had FRESH parsley. That almost never happens.

After cutting 4 medium sized, peeled sweet potatoes into small cubes I added in the ingredients, then tossed making sure all potatoes were coated with the herb/olive oil mixture.

Once everything was mixed well I placed them into a flat layer on top of a wax paper covered cookie sheet.

The recipe called for parchment paper, not sure if there is a difference but there might be seeing that some of my precious sweet potatoe cubes were left stuck to the paper.

I digress

Placed in a 450 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes, flipping the ones that weren’t stuck every 10 minutes.

* I was provided Pompeian olive oil in exchange for this review. All opinions are mine. You already know*

I think every busy Mom is always in search of that quick meal that gets folks fed and in the bed. One of my go to meals is Chicken Alfredo. Sometimes if I am in the mood I will make the sauce from scratch…that’s not often though.

The ingredients are minimal. Olive oil, chicken, broccoli, sauce, and fettucine.
