Ruby Pasta (with beetroot sauce)

A vegan sauce to color up your winter meals!

I wanted to do something with beetroots since their season here in Switzerland is going to an end, and soon I will finally enjoy spring veggies.
Beetroot is a great and versatile winter vegetable. Everything is good about this purple beauty. It is low cal, healthy, has a lot of fibers, and has an incredibly beautiful color, to begin with.

I had it in a variety of versions but I never cooked it with pasta though.
This is delicious! Please try it and let me know if you did.

How to prepare this sauce: Boil one beetroot, (no peeling needed), blend it in a mixer with a spoon of almond butter. Add salt. Garnish your pasta. Enjoy.

Note: The sauce is vegan. In the version in the picture, I added some pecorino cheese on top and a sauce of ricotta & soymilk. (I mixed the two ingredients to make a liquid sauce). Skip this ingredients if you prefer.
