Beetroot Pasta

Dish Main Course
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 500 gr. Any kind of whole grain pasta
  • 2 pcs. Beetroot
  • 1-2 pcs. Fresh garlic
  • 3 tbsp. Ground almonds
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 Pinch Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Oliveoil Extra Nativ
  • 1 Handful Fresh Basil
  • 3 Tbsp. Pecorino cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions. While cooking, set aside a little of the pasta water. You will need the pasta water afterwards for the beetroot pesto.

  2. While the noodles are cooking, you could already start with the beetroot peso. Either you buy the beetroot fresh and cook it in the oven or you buy pre-cooked beetroot. I chose the 2nd option and always buy the beetroot in organic quality. For the pesto, put all the ingredients in the mixer and add the pasta water. Mix everything until you have a creamy consistency. 

  3. Now season the pesto with salt, pepper and lemon juice. If you like, you can also add more Pecorino cheese. 

  4. Now heat the beetroot pesto in a pan and add the pre-cooked pasta & sauté until the pasta has taken on the beautiful colour of beetroot.
