Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Sage and Pecans

In twice-baked sweet potatoes, the flesh is mashed with pureed cottage cheese, shallots, sage, salt, and pepper. The mixture is then spooned back into the potato-skin shells, sprinkled with additional sage and chopped pecans, and baked for a second time -- the pecan bits toast and turn golden brown in the oven.

Cook's Notes

Try to find sweet potatoes that are the same size to ensure even baking time and equal serving sizes.

    Could you substitute plain yogurt for the cottage cheese?

    quite delicious - i substituted fage yogurt (0%) for the cottage cheese and thus skipped the food processor step. also, as i had a bit of a problem with the skins holding together nicely after i scooped them out, i baked the filling in ramekins, which turned out wonderful and quite pretty!
