3 cups cubed sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces

1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

6 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth

1 (14.5 oz) can of diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cups dried pasta

2 cups rainbow chard or kale, chopped into 1/8" thick strips

Salt and pepper to taste

Parmigiano Reggiano, shredded for serving



In a large dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the chopped onions in dutch oven and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sweet potato cubes in the pot and cook until for about 8-10 minutes until slightly softened.

Cover the sweet potatoes with chicken stock and bring the mixture to a slow boil. Cook this mixture until potatoes are softened and easily mashed, about 15-20 minutes. After potatoes are cooked through, remove from heat and use a potato masher or hand blender to mash sweet potatoes, blending until smooth.

Place dutch oven back on stove top over medium-low heat. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and pasta to the sweet potato puree. Cook stew over medium-low heat uncovered for about 10-15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked al-dente, stirring occasionally. Add the kale/chard into the pot and let simmer until the greens are begin to wilt, about 2-3 minutes.

Transfer to soup bowls and serve topped with shredded Parmigiano Reggiano and toasted or crusty bread for dipping. Enjoy!
