But first I should apologize, my friends. One week has passed since I posted the recipe for this luscious ice cream. Let me keep this short today. But I think it would be fair to briefly mention what’s been happening recently.

What’s New?

  1. I had a short (just 5 days) vacation, and once again I had a trip to Nova Scotia to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with Andrey.
  2. While most food blogs are all about pumpkins and apples these days, I have not shared any apple or pumpkin recipe yet. Well, I have made only one apple thing so far which I’ll probably share in December haha.
  3. I am still having some blossoming edible flowers.
  4. I officially run out of figs! I believe a few food buddies (No names today!) just relieved :)
  5. I still have a number of decent food pictures which I took…in August!

Roasted Beetroot Pasta Salad

The pictures of this Roasted Beetroot Pasta Salad were among them. But you know what? I think beetroot is quite a fall veggie, right?

I am not going to talk much about this Roasted Beetroot Pasta Salad cause everything is simple and good here. Pasta, beets, arugula, feta, pine nuts, balsamic, and olive oil. Sounds good, right?

I tried the combo of pasta and roasted beets in 2013, and I quite loved it! It was a recipe of one Italian blogger, and the pasta was named “Pink Butterfliers”. How romantic, eh? That was farfalle pasta mixed with a rich delicious beetroot sauce. That’s not the combo which would love everyone, but I believe the beet fans will be happy to try it.

And it looks gorgeous too.

Have you ever tried the combo of pasta and beets?

  1. Wow, this is seriously stunning again, Ben! I love beetroots, arugula and pine nuts together, but my pasta salads have never ever looked this amazing! Such an eye candy, pinned of course <3

  2. Have you been reading my mind, Ben? Because I have a full bag of beet and I was wondering what should I make with it. And here you are with this pretty pink pasta. I have made pasta with beets before but I did not add arugula and pine nuts, so I have to make this. And also I LOVE roasted beets like anything, so I can tell that I am gonna love this beautiful thing. The point is that I am going to make it soon. :)

  4. Hello there my fellow beetroot lover! I adore beets and this beetroot salad indeed looks fantastic, Ben! Such lovely colors – and ALL NATURAL!!!

  5. You are totally right…that beet pasta is an incredible color! I bet it has a really cool flavor, too. I love the look of this salad…it’s got so many amazing colors going on. Now I’m wondering if you can do the same thing with different veggies. Or perhaps even a fig pasta. Oh wait, you don’t have any figs. Now you know how it feels! Haha! :-) Just kidding, Ben. Hope you have an amazing weekend!
