♫Beat It – Michael Jackson♫

Pasta is girl’s best friend, right?

Ok, no. We all know diamonds are but still.

Pasta dishes are here when we cry over our friend’s shoulder and we stuff ourself with pasta bowls in bed…anyone? OK, I stuff myself with pasta.

I love pasta dishes so much and this one with roasted beetroot, blended with aromatics is my favorite one. Instead of making bechamel or mac and cheese this time, try out this recipe for my bloody (tasty) beet pasta. Bloody beet pasta [♫ Beat It - Michael Jackson] 1
