One of my favorite vegetarian pastas is this really  tasty and so healthy as well  Spaghetti with Beetroot sauce. This sauce is so  magical, natural, happy colored, adding also  feelings  of having something really very special for lunch or dinner. The test is deep earthy but combined with garlic and Parmesan is very soft and unforgettable. This recipe past like storm while scrolling trough  Facebook not long ago  and i loved it. I  did not give attention who’s post was this  but i decide to try it and to check my kids approval (their opinion is very important) as long as my concern for their well being is also very important to me in order to prepare dishes with more vegetables included in. The recipe my vary from the original because i did not really give quite attention to it to follow full but this is the one i’m making at home :

Keep the leaves aside. After 5 min. blend the beets and strings with a cup of the simmering water in blender. Place the paste in sauce pan and add more of the simmering water to reach  sauce consistency.
