I wanted to try this long time ago. Russians love beets – most important part of borscht and vinegret (beet salad). But I never used it pasta meals or cakes. First thing that you can see – color, beautiful bold purple color. Taste a little sweet for me, but with sunny-side up egg on top it make great lunch. For this recipe store-bought, canned, boiled or roasted beets can be used, but I recommend roast it in foil for deep taste.
