Perfectly Pink Pasta

Happy Friday loves!! Valentine’s Day is RIGHT around the corner and we’ve been busy planning and creating SO MUCH Valentine’s Day content to share with you! From DIY’s to gift guides to perfectly PINK PASTA, you’re going to be ready and inspired to your little heart’s content!!

So, to kick our Valentine’s Day content off, we’ve decided to share our Perfectly Pink Pasta recipe with you!! Now, the great thing about this pasta is that it’s fairly quick to prepare because we decided to use premade noodles (you can use ANY pasta noodles you wish, whether it be Rigatoni, Fettuccini, Penne, or Spaghetti … you decide!) but if you’re looking to put a little extra LOVE into this dish, feel free to get all Martha Stewart on us and make your own homemade noodles … (extra points go out to the person who does that … and we want to see photos of it too!!!) LOL!!

Mackenzie came up with this recipe and all of us girls got to be the taste testers (even Leo got in on this!) and all of us absolutely LOVED AND DEVOURED IT!! It’s so freakin tasty! Not only is the sauce pink but because the beets (which is what is used to colour the sauce) have such a vibrant colour, that when you mix the noodles in with the pink sauce, it actually turns the noodles pink as well!!! It’s such a fun pasta to whip up for your lover, or for your girlfriends … and it obviously tastes best with a glass of Rosé!

Ps. Don’t forget to check out my Valentine’s Day Shop page HERE for more V-Day inspo!!

  1. This looks amazing. Just a question… I’ve tried making some versions of vegan cheese sauce, but I find that it ends up gritty. Does yours? Or am I not blending long enough? I almost feel like I should strain it, like the nut milk. Im afraid this beet pasta might be gritty too?

    Another Valentine’s Day or cookbook suggestion: beet risotto. Sooo good. Thanks

  2. I’m allergic to tree nuts. Any suggestions as a substitute for the cashews?

    Thank you Jillian and team. You inspire me on a daily basis. I would love to start incorporating more plant based food choices in my life but am struggling as I am allergic to most nuts. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

  3. Sounds amazing! Do you have a suggestion for vegan Parmesan? I’m sure you’ve mentioned your favourites before and I just missed it lol

  4. This recipe is absolutely amazing!!! I just read it and had to try and my mind is completely blown!!! It’s healthy, delicious, easy and PINK, what more could you possibly desire?!?!? This will definitely become one of my regular dishes.

  5. Looks delish! Quick clarification – when it calls for one beet, is that literally one round beet or one clump of beets like in the photo? One single beet doesn’t seem like much 🙂 Thanks!

  6. I am not vegan and thus still looks amazing!! Hoping to try it tonight! One question though – did you ever peel the beets (either before or after roasting) or just left them whole since they are being puréed? Thanks:)

  7. Hello! SUPER Jill, and Team Jilly fan here! Just wondering which pasta you are using in this recipe? It is such a cute shape and I have seen you guys using it in other recipes, but haven’t found anything similar in stores here (White Rock BC). Thanks Ladies!


  8. I made this tonight and my 2.5 year old daughter gobbled it up! It was a hit with my beet detesting husband as well! Good thing I have left over beets so I can make this again next week!

  9. Hi Jill! I was wondering if I could use this recipe with gnocchi? Would this alter the taste significantly?
    Please let me know, I’m planning on making it for my boyfriend of valentines day but want it to turn out good. Thanks, Kelsey <3

    1. Hmmmm it should be awesome with gnocchi!!!! I would give it a little trial first, just in case, but it should be great!! XO

  10. Made this pasta tonight for Valentines and it turned out so amazing!! I used red wine as thats all i had and it was an awesome colour 😀 Even my 1 year old loved it

  11. This is so delicious!! I made it tonight and I think it’ll be a new staple in our house. I made too much pasta so there wasn’t enough sauce, and I’d definitely add more beets to the sauce next time…but ultimately SO tasty! Thanks so much for posting!

      1. I used 1/2 cup of raw sunflower seeds soaked overnight, rinsed and drained. Just like your awesome recipe only nut free. It worked great. It was so colourful and delicious!

  12. Okay so I know this post is a little late! But I loveeeeeeee this RECIPE Jill!!! I know you will be busy with your new little one but hopefully you will have more specialty recipes like this coming up for October and hopefully another Valentine’s Day one. Can’t wait for your cookbook!!! Where can I post pictures of the recipes of yours that I’ve made? Even though they will not be professionally taken and is beautifully done as yours:) .. I know you mentioned you want to see from us how they have turned out.
