Recipe: Beet Pasta

This pasta is delightful in color and actually does not taste like beets at all so it’s basically a way to eat pink pasta. You can make the beet puree ahead of time or even make a big batch of it and freeze it (which is what I did) meaning that once you have the puree it’ll be the same 45 minutes from start to finish that regular homemade pasta is. This is honestly one of the best and easiest ways to make sensational pasta if you want to wow a friend or family.
