- Drain beets and allow to cool then slice and cover with pesto , salt and pepper to taste.
- Arrange on a greased baking sheet and put into oven until they appear slightly brown on edges about 10 to 15 minute.
Great combination of flavors that I would never have thought of on my own!
Never would have thought to put beets and pesto together but it works. We thought this made a really nice change of pace. Made as written using Recipe #176624. DH who is only so-so about beets said he would not mind having these again. Thanks for the post.
This was pretty good. My only regret was not cooking my beets until soft, as they were slightly hard in the middle. Tasty though and I will probably make these again. Thank you for this recipe.
