Homemade Beet Pasta & SAVORA GIVEAWAY

This is a colorful pasta, made from roasted beets with a sweet aftertaste and a lovely bright color that marries best with cheese sauce and fresh herbs thats show off its beauty. Small beets will impart magenta color; larger beets will impart a darker, almost purplish color. Some of the color will inevitably leach out into the water, but the cooked pasta will still be quite bright.

Since I have redesigned my kitchen and focused on every tiny detail that went into it, now I have another difficult task ahead of me. I need to update all of the contents of the my kitchen. You probably saw the beautiful containers that I posted about, but now I’m on a mission to find functional, yet beautiful appliances that will further enhance the beauty (and purposefulness) of my kitchen. Here’s where Savora line comes in. I already had a few pieces from them that I enjoyed, but these next ones are true keepers.

The colander just looks dazzling on my kitchen, especially when I add the colorful fruits, vegetables or pasta to it.

The pizza wheel is similar to a Santoku knife, since its blade has kullens along the sides that create air pockets which helps food fall off the blade easier.

The hand grater can be used in 3 different ways, so it’s really 3 tools in one. When the removable container is attached to the Savora Hand Grater it can be used upright – similar to a box grater – or flat on a table. With the container off, the soft casing along the back of the Hand Grater allows you to use it over a bowl or plate as a traditional hand rasp.

You can find Savora in any Bloomingdale’s stores near you.

I think these would make a great additions to anyone’s kitchen, and that is why I’m happy to provide my reader the opportunity to win each one of these gadgets.

Savora giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much for all your comments!

Shibi Thomas – colander

Note: The beets can be roasted up to 2 days in advance. Trim and peel them, then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until needed. You can also roast additional beets at the same time, which can be sliced and used in salads.

Makes: about 6 servings

Ingredients:

For the pasta:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 very small beets
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil for the beets
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
For the sauce:
  • 4-5 sausages, cut in cubes (I used spiced apple chicken sausages)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. cream
  • 3-4 Tbsp. parmesan cheese, plus some to serve
  • 2 Tbsp. crumbled blue cheese
  • fresh chives to serve
bread and red wine to serve this delicious pasta




Directions:

Preheat an oven to 365°F.

Put the beets in a baking dish and drizzle with the olive oil, turning them to coat well. Cover with foil and roast until the beets are easily pierced with a fork, about 50 minutes to an hour. Remove from the oven. When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel and coarsely chop them.

Knead on low speed until the dough is soft and smooth, 5 to 8 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a ball. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rest, for about 1 hour.

When ready, roll out the dough using your pasta machine according manufacture’s instructions. If you don’t have a pasta machine, you can roll it out by hand with a rolling pin. Make sure to flour the pasta very well after you cut it to prevent from sticking. You may dry your pasta for later using pasta dryer.

Bring a large pot three-fourths full of salted water to a rolling boil over high heat. When the water is boiling, stir in the pasta and cook until al dente, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the sausage and cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes. Add the red pepper and garlic, cook a couple of minutes more. Add the white wine, and season with salt and pepper.

Drain the pasta and transfer to to the pan with the sausage and toss well. Add the cream, parmesan cheese and butter, mix well. Cook for two more minutes. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl. Sprinkle with the blue cheese, parmesan cheese, fresh chives and serve immediately.

    Making fresh pasta is still in my to do list. The beet pasta looks awesome with herbs.

    I liked the pizza cutter and the Colander, but the blue Colander is astounding with the fruits, so Colander is my favorite.

    These pieces by Savora look like works of art! I especially love the pizza wheel which, nostalgically, reminded me of my childhood bicycle with the shiny cogwheel and curved tubing, although my bike's was green. Love the blue!

    "A picture is worth a thousand words!"
    How many times have we heard that line before?
    Well folks, this picture does absolutely look amazing, and it would take just about a thousand words to describe the culinary experience I had actually eating this exact dish… That's right people, I actually had the privilege, honor, and luck to feast on everything you see in this photo, down to the wine, bread, and even the truffle butter spread. WOW! What an experience that was. Thank you chef for the amazing meal, I was one lucky painter, in the right place, at the right time.

    About the Colander/grater/cutter, they are very chic and stylish. Looking at them makes me want to cook something. Food needs to be bold and beautiful, and kitchen accessories such as the ones displayed are exactly what I need to get me going in the kitchen. Beautiful tools will call upon the chef in all of us, and demand to be used to create dishes like the one I had. Happy cooking everyone, and cheers Yelena, thank you for brightening our days.
