Tomato Alfredo Sauce
Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Cut an 'x' in the bottom of your tomato, and blanch it in the boiling water for two minutes. Remove from water and let cool for a few minutes before peeling off the skin at the 'x'.
Roughly chop tomato, or place in a blender and pulse until chunky.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic and shallot and saute for 3-4 minutes until fragrant. Add tomato and boil, stirring occasionally, until thickened and saucy, about 15 minutes.
In another saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned to create a roux, about 1 minute.
Gradually whisk in milk and cook, whisking constantly about 1-2 minutes, until incorporated. Stir in heavy cream and garlic powder until mixture is slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
Stir in Neufchatel and Parmesan until melted, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, mixing until incorporated. Season with desired amount of salt and pepper.
Heat remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and saute for 3-4 minutes, until they begin to brown.
Add tomato halves, stirring gently, and cook another 2-3 minutes. Add spinach and allow to wilt, 1-2 minutes. Pour veggies in a small bowl.
Without cleaning the pan, return it to medium-low heat and add the spiralized sweet potato noodles. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes until crisp-tender.
Return mushroom mixture to skillet, then pour Alfredo sauce over and toss to coat, allowing everything to heat to uniform temperature. Serve & enjoy.
