  • A pinch of red chili flakes optional

  • ½ cup light shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Fresh parsley for garnishing (optional)

  • Spray a skillet (or cast iron) with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Add the onions and yellow peppers, and cook until the onions are soft.

  • Add the sweet potato, red chili flakes, salt, and pepper.

  • Cover the skillet, and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender. Don’t forget to stir occasionally. If necessary, add more olive oil or a little bit of water to cook the sweet potatoes faster.

  • While the sweet potatoes are cooking, preheat the oven to 400ºF.

  • When the sweet potatoes are tender, add the shredded mozzarella cheese, and put the skillet in the oven to melt the cheese.

  • When the cheese melts, remove from the oven, and garnish with parsley.
