    * 1 large sweet potato
    * 2/3 cup 2% milk
    * 2 cups uncooked penne pasta
    * 1 tablespoon pine nuts
    * 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
    * 1 tablespoon butter
    * 1 garlic clove, minced
    * 1 teaspoon olive oil
    * 3/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    * 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

    Directions
     
    * Scrub and pierce sweet potato; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-12 minutes or until tender, turning once. When cool enough to handle, remove and discard skin. Place potato in a large bowl and mash with milk.
    * Cook pasta according to package directions. In a large skillet, saute pine nuts and sage in butter until pine nuts are toasted. Remove from pan and set aside.
    * In the same skillet, saute garlic in oil for 1 minute. Stir in the sweet potato mixture, salt and pepper. Drain pasta, reserving 3/4 cup cooking water; add to sweet potato mixture. Stir in the cheese, pine nut mixture and reserved cooking water. Sprinkle with additional cheese if desired. Yield: 5 servings.
