Pasta a la Schrute

Or, for anyone who's not a fan of The Office, pasta with beets.

This recipe from Whole Living magazine has only increased the love I already had for my favorite vegetable. The process is a little time consuming because it involves roasting fresh beets, but is otherwise really simple. The sauce, which is almost like a beet version of pesto, is made by pureeing the roasted beets along with sun dried tomatoes, walnuts, and olive oil, and is mixed with plain or whole wheat linguine. Red pepper flakes add a hint of heat that's nicely balanced by a dollop of ricotta cheese. 

I highly recommend trying this one.


  1. I'm definitely going to make that, and I'm definitely calling it Pasta a la Schrute.

  2. Oh my, oh my! I don't know if I could do it! I like a fresh beet on occasion. But cooked-ack! I got some from the farm share last season and could not find a way to love them as hard as I tried!
