These beet root tortellini don’t just taste awesome but they are really pretty as well. The best thing about the dough is that we don’t use any egg, so the color stays as bright as you can see in the pictures. If you use an egg, the color fades away. But luckily they don’t taste like beet root 😉
Self-made pasta is great. The ingredients only cost a few cents and after that you got a really amazing choice of what to do with these beauties. Whether you like ravioli, tortellini, tagliatelle or whatever, just do it. Well, ok, you have to use your hands and the first ones might not be as beautiful as expected, but that will disappear after a bit of practice.
The dough is just flour, salt and beet root juice BUT don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like beet root at all, it just produces the great color which even Lars loves, so not just a girly thing;)
Have you ever made pasta yourselves? In case you didn’t, you should really get to it. Invite a few friends, get some music and make some pasta together. We always do a lot of this to put some of them in the freezer for bad days. Cook them for a minute and swing them in some butter. Super easy, super fast and super delicious.
