  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix 1 tablespoon oil, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the garlic. Add sweet potatoes and onions; toss to coat. Spread in 9x13-inch pan. Roast uncovered 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, brush pork tenderloins with 1/2 tablespoon oil. In small bowl, stir together 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt and the Parmesan cheese.
  • 3
    Move vegetables to center of pan; place 1 pork tenderloin on each side. Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over pork. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of pork.
  • 4
    Roast uncovered 20 to 25 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 155°F. Cover pan with foil; let stand 5 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F, and pork will be easier to carve.)
  • 5
    Cut pork into 1-inch-thick slices; arrange on platter with sweet potatoes and onions. Sprinkle with parsley.

Expert Tips

  • Many varieties of sweet potatoes are sold in supermarkets. The sweet potatoes with darker skin (often labeled "yams") not only make a richer-colored dish, but also a tastier, sweeter one. The very light-colored sweet potatoes are not as sweet and are often drier.
  • Some meat thermometers are too top-heavy to stand up in a pork tenderloin. If the thermometer will not stand vertically, try inserting it almost horizontally, or sideways, into the pork. Using an instant-read thermometer is another option; check for doneness at the minimum time given. Instant-read thermometers are not ovenproof and can not be left in the pork during roasting.
