Beet Pasta with Lemon-Creme Sauce

It’s time to talk beet pasta. The awesome thing about beet pasta? Well, there are a few things actually:

 

1) If you like the flavor of beets, you’ll find this pasta sweet and delicious, especially when paired with this dairy-free lemon-creme sauce.

 

2) Beet pasta is grain-free and gluten-free, making it a healthy choice for those with food allergies, intolerances, or who try to avoid gluten/grains.

 

3) If you’re stuck in a beet rut this winter, beet “pasta” is a fun and creative way to use seasonal beets!
