You can’t BEAT this Beet Pesto Pasta! Perfect for Memorial Day weekend or any summer gathering!

Beets are always so messy but I love cooking with them because they have such a pretty color and they are too healthy to ignore. With beets containing antioxidants and phytochemicals… and aiding in supporting liver health and lowering blood pressure these messy root vegetables are a-maz-ing.

  1. Not only are beets delicious, but that COLOR!! They can just about turn any dish into a beautiful piece of art 🙂 This sounds so delicious!

  2. What a beautiful colour! I love the idea and have some beets in the fridge at the moment – I think I’d be afraid to eat it without an apron on though!
