Pink Pasta ❤ ピンク色のパスタ


Pink Pasta

Feeling especially girly? Tired of that boring beige-coloured pasta? Try out some naturally coloured pink pasta! This really brightens up any day to day meal, and leaves you with leftover beets to use for lunch (in a salad, maybe?) the next day! The beets add a slightly sweet taste to the pasta, so be sure to add a generous pinch of salt to the water before cooking the pasta. If you add a cream sauce to this pasta, the residual beet juice on the pasta will dye the cream a light pink, making your pasta extra pink! So cute! I actually ate pasta the day after as well, and it looked shockingly dull compared to this one. hahaha

Ingredients (serves 1)
❤ 5 beets, peeled and quartered
❤ 2L water
❤200g dried pasta
❤ pecorino romano cheese
❤ salt
❤ parsley

1. Place the beets in a pot, and cover with about 2 litres of water. Cover, bring to a boil, and boil until the beets are fully cooked.
2. Remove the beets from the pot, keeping the remaining beet-coloured water in the pot. Add the dry pasta, and add enough water to just cover the pasta. (note: boiling pasta in a large amount of water is best, but in order to attain the deepest pink, aim to dilute the beet-coloured water as little as possible.) Add a large pinch of salt to the water, and boil the pasta according to the directions on the package.
3. Once the pasta has finished cooking, drain and serve with pecorino romano or parmesan cheese and a sprig of parsley.
