Introduction

Not just good for you by being high in protein and low in fat, this dish also provides antioxidants from the beetroot in the form of betalins, which reduce inflammation and may help to protect against cancer.

The pepperberry is optional, but highly recommended. 

The best part? This plant-based beetroot pasta sauce comes together faster than the time it takes to cook your pasta.
