Beetroot Pesto

195/365 Beetroot Pesto Spaghetti #mostly365

I only recently started eating beets. I don’t think I ever had beets as a child; I do recall a can of soggy beets once, and with that I wouldn’t give beets another thought for several years.
I had dinner at my friend J’s a while back, and we had roasted beet salad for starters – it was simply delicious, refreshing and colourful, I decided maybe beets weren’t that bad after all.
I’ve tried beets in juices, roasted veggies and ice cream
When I saw this recipe for beets pesto I knew I absolutely had to try it.

Ingredients for Beets Pesto Beetroot Pesto

I love anything pesto! And beets pesto? Sounds awesome!
I modified the recipe a bit; I tossed in some basil and sun-dried tomatoes, switched out the almonds for pistachios, and omitted the cheese.
I love this pesto! It’s vibrant, tasty and makes pink pasta!
Plus it’s so easy to make, no complicated steps, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.
