Roses are red… and so is this pasta recipe!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And in honor of the holiday of love (and also this season of The Bachelor!) this Red Beet Pasta recipe is the color of roses.
Most Valentine’s Day recipes are sugary desserts or normal foods dyed pink. Pretty, yes, but also very girly and not particularly healthy. This Reed Beet Pasta, on the other hand, is naturally red, healthy, vegetarian and super easy to make. Plus, its vibrant red hue is appropriate for the man in your life, since this dish is still festive without looking girly.
To make my healthy, vegetarian Red Beet Pasta, you’ll need:
4 beets, cooked and skinless
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup tahini paste
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 pound of pasta
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 dozen roses (just for fun)!
Begin by blending the beets, tahini, garlic and olive oil to your desired consistency. The beets can either be a little chunky, or more finely blended, depending on your preference.
Now cook the pasta to your desired firmness.
Then add the beet sauce to the pan as well as the heavy whipping cream.
Then you’re ready to mix it together.
Easy, isn’t it?!
I hope you love this recipe as much as I love you!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
