Yield Makes 8 servings
Keeping the beets separate in the pan while baking prevents them from staining the other vegetables deep red.

  • 8 shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
