    Wild Thyme Flour's Note:

    This is a vegetarian dish ( if you don't use anchovies, instead replace with parmesan ) but you may put some steamed peeled prawns on top or a tbsp of black caviar. The beetroot are roasted with their skin on in the oven until tender, this makes them taste better then boiled. By 2 small beetroot, I mean small. When I used 2 medium the sauce was a rather dark pink ( like the picture I will be posting. The other time I made it ( with small beetroot) the colour looked nicer. Gluten free version listed in ingredients, obviously using gluten free pasta.
