Beet Pesto Pasta {GIVEAWAY!}

I’m just so excited. I feel like SO many of my lovely friends have cookbooks out this spring and I’m so proud of them!

I had been waiting a long time for this book to come out by my sweet friend, Heather Christo, and it did not disappoint. You guys — this is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cookbooks that I have ever seen. The photography is stunning. The recipes are fabulous {so far, I’ve made four things from the book and going strong!}. The day it came out, I immediately hopped on Amazon and bought copies for my mom and one of my best friends. I’m so excited to share Heather’s book with you today. It’s really something special.

I feel like when I’m not developing recipes for this site, I’m cooking Heather’s recipes. I’m not kidding. Whenever I don’t know what to make for dinner, I always turn to her because I know she doesn’t disappoint. When something I make is really, really delicious, Adam always asks, “is this one of Heather or Jessica’s recipes?” Yup. It’s true. I have super talented friends, what can I say?

I made the beautiful beet pesto pasta recipe out of Heather’s new cookbook to share with you guys today! It’s the ultimate spring pasta dish. I share Heather’s obsession with pesto. Ever since getting my first food processor last year, I’ve made pounds of the stuff. It fuels my garlic + lemon love.

This vibrant pesto is made from beets, pistachios, garlic, lemon and Parmesan cheese. Oh man, is it ever tasty! I loved the addition of pistachios, which are my favorite nuts {and ice cream flavor!}.

There’s also an equally lovely asparagus pesto recipe in Heather’s cookbook. I made it about a month ago for friends and everyone loved it! I’ll say, though,that this beet pesto trumps it, due to the sole fact that the pasta is hot pink. Obviously. This would be a fun dish to serve on Valentine’s Day or for a date night at home. Next time I make it, I’m going to serve it alongside some grilled chicken.

I have two SIGNED copies of Heather’s book to give away to you guys today! I just know you’ll love it as much as I do. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll pick two random winners on Monday, May 13th at 10pm PST.

Good luck and have a lovely day!

**This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been notified! Thanks everyone!**

Ingredients:

3 large purple beets, top trimmed

3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed

    I wonder- does the pink stain the food processor? Beets always seem to stain everything they touch- including my counter which now has a slight pink colour to it.

    Pick me for the recipe book- I’ll risk staining to make a beet pesto!

    Jenna this looks amazing! I normally steer clear of carbs for dinner, but I think I may have to make an exception for PINK pasta! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding ๐Ÿ™‚ Mine is coming up on August 3rd in the Bay Area and I share in your exceitment every time you post about yours!
    I’m wondering – for the pesto, do you think the beets should be fresh, or could I use the steamed beets from Trader Joe’s? That shortcut would make this an ultimately easy weeknight meal! Let me know if you think it would sacrifice flavor at all.

    I absolutely love to eat beets! I learned they help with detoxing the liver, so I eat a 1/2 c. or so daily. I have only been making them in one fashion…..peeling and cubing them, tossing them with a drizzle of organic EVOO, a few splashes of balsamic vinegar, sprinkles of course sea salt and baked for 30 minutes in glass casserole dish in oven. I store these in fridge for a week and when I eat my daily amount, I eat cold and straight from container or added to my salad greens. So yummy! Now I have another recipe to use them in and I really love my pesto!!! I will probably not toss with pasta but rather use straight on rice crackers and as a dip! I bet Heather has lots of yummy, healthy recipes in her new cookbook!!

I had to sub sunflower seeds for the pistachios (not readily available at my South African grocery store), but I’m sure it’s even more amazing with them. Such a fun, girly food–def going to make it again for our girls’ pasta nights! Thanks Jenna!
