  5. After fifteen minutes, peel the sweet potato and chop the potato and carrots into medium sized pieces.
  6. Add the vegetables to a medium sized saucepan.
  7. Add the almond milk and heat on medium-low, stirring often, for fifteen minutes.
  8. Add the spices and gently smash the vegetables with a potato masher or a fork.
  9. Add the sauce to the cooked pasta, and mix well.
  10. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
  11. Enjoy!
