I used red beets also because I had no yellow ones, I also used fresh spinach. It was easy and quick. My husband and my daughter loved it. I will definately use again and maybe use Kale or collards next time.
I had this recipe twice now- once at a dinner party and once at home. It's a great dish as is, but I added arugula to the pesto and that was a nice addition. Also, I couldn't find beets with the greens and stems attached so I just added some spinach leaves. Overall, it's a great meal!!
I made this recipe and faithfully adhered to all the instructions ; it was okay , but not so good to justify the preponderance of dirty dishes that were generated by it.
Try this recipe, it does not disappoint!! I even used red beets because we didn't have golden beets yet. So good with the pesto!! The serving sizes are closer to two cups each. Definitely will make again!
