Directions
  1. Bring two pots of water to boil, meanwhile scrub the potatoes and stab them with a knife. Once the water is boiling toss in the potatoes and cook until easily impaled. This should take around 20 minutes.
  2. Once the potatoes are done remove them from the heat, for a quick cool down run cold water over them. Put the lasagna noodles in the other pot of boiling water and set the time for about 10 minutes
  3. Once the potatoes are cooled pinch off their skin. Cut them into small pieces and mash them up with the goat cheese. (Note if you want them creamy heat them up a little while you are doing this). Salt to taste.
  4. In a sauce pan heat the butter on medium-low. Add the sage and cook until browned, about 4-5 minutes.
  5. Drain the lasagna noodles. Place a few noodles on a plate and scoop some of the sweet potatoe mixture around them. Repeat this until all the noodles and mix are used up.
  6. Crack some pepper on top and devour!

I am one of the rare northern Cali girls who hearts LA. My family hails from India via Kenya and being a good little south asian i spent many of my young years in the kitchen. Surrounded by good food from birth (thanks mom!) i have always loved cooking, eating and learning about food. In recent years i have developed an interest in the history of food and its cultural connection particularly in how imperialism and colonization has had an influence on cuisines of the world. This blog is my way of exploring the amazing web of nourishment that sustains us.
