If you think plain pasta dough is boring or you want to make pink pasta for Valentine’s Day or any other day you associate with pink, beetroot is a messy, but effective way to make pink pasta dough.

This was one of the first dyes I used for pasta and I was astonished by the intensity of the colour. My co-worker said it reminded her of huge bubble gum.

First, I used beetroot from a jar, which already has a lot of liquid in it. But then I thought that that might be water as well, additional water to the juice I mean. So I decided to extract the dye or juice from whole beetroot. I bought it peeled, though, because it already is a very messy job.
