Sweet Potato Cannelloni

I came across a recipe today that I am super excited to make. I wanted to make it with my additions first and then post the recipe later to let you know how it turned out but I had to share it as soon as possible so you could have enough time to prepare it for dinner tonight, too! It’s low-calorie, low-fat and sounds delicious. What a great alternative to have in place of noodles! I plan on adding some chopped kale (about a cup or two), chopped onion (1/2 cup or so), garlic (1 Tbsp. minced) and nutritional yeast (1/4 cup), but if you don’t want to add those or don’t have them, don’t worry about it, I just like to add the things that I love! I figured out the nutritional information for this based on the original recipe (and 8 servings) so keep that in mind of you add anything extra like I do! Click HERE for the recipe (thanks Martha Stewart)!
