Sweet potato bake with cheese, sage and butter sauce. Easy peasy sweet potato side dish that goes well with any main entrees and perfect for holidays.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
Arrange the sweet potato slices in a circular pattern in the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven to bake for 1 hour.
During the last few minutes of baking, combine the butter, garlic and sage in a small pan and cook on medium heat until the sage is crisp and the butter is slightly golden brown.
Remove the sweet potato from oven and place on a trivet. Drizzle the sage butter sauce evenly as possible over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle on the cheese, and serve.
Parmigiano reggiano or any type of hard, salty cheese is a good substitute for pecorino romano.
