Kitchen Gloves

Ingredients

Roasted Garlic and Onion: These aromatic powerhouses lay the flavour foundation for our recipe. Roasting them coaxes out their natural sweetness and mellows their flavours, infusing depth into the sauce.

Beetroots: The star of the show, beetroots not only contribute a stunning pink hue but also a wealth of health benefits. Barbie Pasta is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, making it as nutritious as it is visually appealing.

Feta Cheese and Greek Yogurt: These dairy darlings add creaminess and tang to the sauce. Feta’s salty notes complement the beetroots’ sweetness, while Greek yoghurt provides a luxurious, smooth texture.

Himalayan Sea Salt and Pepper: Seasoning is key to bringing out the flavours. Himalayan sea salt elevates the overall profile, while pepper brings a touch of warmth.

Soaked Cashews: The secret to achieving a silky sauce without heavy cream is cashews. They also introduce a subtle nutty undertone that perfectly complements the dish.

Low-Carb Pasta: To keep our Barbie Pasta healthy, we opt for low-carb pasta. Feel free to swap in whole wheat, chickpea, or zucchini noodles based on your dietary preferences.

Expert Notes

  • Use Gloves: Beetroots are notorious for staining hands. Wear gloves when handling and preparing them to protect your hands.
  • Adjusting Sauce Consistency: Don’t fret if your sauce turns out too thick! Remember the reserved cup of pasta cooking water. Simply add a small amount to the sauce until it reaches your desired consistency.

Barbie Pasta: Where Culinary Creativity Meets Childhood Fun

Let’s dive into it!

Step 1: Roasting Garlic and Onion

  1. Roasting garlic and onion is a simple yet transformative process that infuses depth of flavor into our sauce. Here’s how to do it:
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  3. Trim about a third of the top of the garlic head to expose the cloves.
  4. Place the garlic head and sliced red onion on a baking sheet.
  5. Drizzle them with a tablespoon of olive oil for exquisite caramelization.
  6. Roast for 45 minutes, or until tender and beautifully browned.
  7. Let the roasted garlic and onion cool before squeezing out the soft garlic cloves.

Step 2: Preparing the Creamy Beetroot Sauce

  1. The heart of our Barbie Pasta lies in the creamy beetroot sauce. Let’s craft this masterpiece:
  2. In a high-speed blender, combine the roasted garlic and onion with the remaining sauce ingredients: olive oil, pre-cooked beetroots, feta cheese, Greek yogurt, Himalayan sea salt, pepper, water, and soaked cashews.
  3. Blend until the mixture is velvety smooth and boasts that signature brilliant pink color that will make your Barbie Pasta a visual delight.

Step 3: Cooking the Pasta

  1. Now that our sauce is ready, let’s cook the pasta to perfection:
  2. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook the low-carb pasta following the package instructions.
  3. Carefully drain the pasta 5 minutes before the suggested cooking time.
  4. Don’t forget to reserve a cup of pasta cooking water. This reserve will come in handy later for adjusting the sauce’s consistency.

Step 4: Combining Pasta and Sauce

  1. With both the sauce and pasta prepped, it’s time to unite these elements:
  2. Return the drained pasta to the pot.
  3. Pour the luscious beetroot sauce from the blender over the pasta.
  4. Gently stir until the sauce and pasta are thoroughly warmed. Be cautious not to overheat the sauce; simply warm it to ensure every bite is delectable.

Step 5: Serving and Garnishing

  1. The moment has arrived to unveil your Barbie Pasta creation:
  2. Plate your Barbie Pasta with artistic flair, showcasing its gorgeous pink hue.
  3. For a delightful crunch, sprinkle a generous handful of roasted cashews and a sprinkle of finely chopped parsley on top.
  4. Serve your masterpiece with pride and savour every bite of this gourmet delight.

Storage Instructions:

In the unlikely event of having leftover Barbie Pasta, here’s how to store it:

  • To keep the pasta fresh, store it in an airtight container.
  • Refrigerate it for up to 3-4 days.
  • When reheating, add a splash of water or milk to the pasta to maintain its creaminess.
  • Barbie Pasta is best enjoyed freshly made but can be reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop.
