Peel the sweet potatoes and using a peeler or food processor that can julienne (if you have one) thinly slice it into thin, noodle-like strips. This will take a while with a peeler, but is a good job for an older child to help with. Once all the sweet potatoes are peeled, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter or coconut oil in a large skillet and add the sweet potato "noodles." Sprinkle lightly with sea salt or Himalayan Salt.
Cook for about 7-8 minutes, stirring constantly, until noodles are starting to get tender but are not mushy yet. Remove from pan. Add the bacon and cook until crispy. Remove from pan and add onion, peas/asparagus and the remaining tablespoon of butter or oil if needed. Cook 3-4 minutes or until onions are translucent and peas are bright green and tender. Add the shrimp (tails and skins removed) and saute another 5-6 minutes until shrimp is cooked (less time if shrimp is pre-cooked). Add the parmesan and cream/coconut milk and desired spices to taste. Stir 1-2 minutes to thicken. (can completely omit the parmesan and cream/coconut milk if you don't want a creamy pasta and prefer a stir-fry type taste)
