Roasted beetroot pasta sauce – Take beetroots to the next level with this vibrant pasta sauce. Simply stir through your favorite pasta and top with feta and mint leaves. Dinner made easy!
Do you love beetroots? I’m literally obsessed with the vibrant and rich deep red color of beetroots. And I’m pretty sure you all have already tried out the beautiful red string hoppers which is actually an upgraded version of the classic idiyappam or Kerala style string hoppers infused with the natural color from beets. It’s one of my favorites, so I really wanted to create another dish highlighting beautiful beets.
Enter this roasted beetroot pasta sauce. A simple dish featuring vibrant oven roasted beetroots. It’s not only pretty, but also super nutritious loaded with the goodness of beetroots. Plus, this surprisingly delicious beet pasta sauce is also super simple to make.
Moving onto the recipe, let’s start with roasting the beetroots. You’ll need to place the beets in a baking tray, add a sprig of rosemary (or even thyme), and season with salt and pepper. Roast them in the oven until tender. Alternatively, you can also bake whole beetroots, and peel them just before you purée them.
Once the beets are cooled slightly, you’ll need to make a smooth purée. The combo of roasted beets and garlic is so good. And the addition of cooked pasta water makes it even more flavorful. Yum!
Delicious roasted beetroot puree is ready. Now all you need to do is heat up a little oil, and add beetroot purée. Stir in a little cream for extra flavor. Toss your favorite cooked pasta in the beetroot sauce.
I love this pasta garnished with plenty of feta. Sprinkle generously with mint leaves if you like. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the goodness of these vibrant red beetroots.
