Sweet potatoes make an excellent addition to tomato sauce—they are sweet and creamy and balance acidic tomatoes perfectly.

  1. 1 large sweet potato (1 pound), peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  2. 1 large tomato (8 ounces), chopped
  3. 1/2 cup water
  4. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  5. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  6. Kosher salt
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large saucepan, cover the potato with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Boil until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer the potato to a blender. Add the tomato, water, cream and olive oil and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for 1 week or frozen for 1 month.
