    MA HIKER's Note:

    I love beets and am always looking for other ways to cook them - this is from Rachel Ray - she suggests garnishing this with crumbled ricotta-salata cheese (or feta)and roasted asparagus. I am a purist and served it plain to enjoy the beet flavor. I also used 5 small beets instead of the large. (this might be nice garnished with a few toasted walnuts & a bit of crumbled blue cheese if you want to add some other flavors)

      I had this in my cookbooks for a while now and I finally had the chance to make it. I think I found a keeper, I topped it with a wonderful young goat Gouda I found at the market. I can't wait for dinner tomorrow. Thanks so Much for posting Ma!

      This was very good, I did not have red wine, so I used lime juice instead, which may have been the reason it was a tiny bit bland for me. Easy to make and a beautiful color. Thank you!

      Easy to make and delicious. I put parmesan cheese on it as a garnish. Highly recommended for those who like beets.
