Pasta with Creamy Roasted Beet Sauce

No one could accuse this pasta of being anything less than exciting. She’s’ definitely a plate turner. That’s no dye job boys and girls. That color is what you get when throw a roasted beet into the mix. Now I know beets are a love them or leave them kind of thing and honestly up until a few years ago I was a leave them kind of girl. Then I figured out that roasting them was the ticket to my love affair with beets and lemon juice because you’re going to need that when you work with roasted beets unless you like hot pink hands.

And while pink is my favorite color hot pink hands don’t go with much if anything unless it’s a Halloween party and well we’re past that aren’t we. You’re going to want to add some crushed pistachios to this one before serving. It was my intention to have this in the photo (and my belly) but I have some serious pistachio lovers in my house. When I went to locate my stash (yes I have to hide some) they were gone. I now need a new hiding place. Sigh.

    I’m beginning to love beets more and more – mostly because of the color, but also when it’s paired with something creamy and cheesy and carby 😉

    I hate beets but this is looking so gorgeous and delicious that I have the feeling I would totally love this!

    Made this for dinner tonight! Instead of adding parmesan cheese, I topped it with goat cheese and fresh arugula! Big hit with the husband and the kids!
