Beet Fettuccine Alfredo with Basil Ricotta

The pretty pink color of this pasta is mesmerizing. It’s almost too pretty to eat . . . almost. Pro tip: Don’t throw out the beet greens! They are softer than kale but sturdier than spinach. I like to sauté them to add to my pasta for a more nutritious and complete meal.

Make-ahead tip

The sauce can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Make it gluten free

Use gluten-free pasta.
