Now that I'm back to being vegan I realized it's going to be a bit harder to have my heavy pasta dinners since I will no longer be eating alfredo sauce (unless I make it). On tonight's menu: Beet Ravioli with Sage Pesto Sauce and a side of spicy broccoli.
I highly suggest that when making pasta from scratch to 1) not start making the pasta right as you start to to get hungry 2) If you screw up and start making the pasta when you are hungry make a snack (I made boca nuggets) 3) a bottle of wine and patience is a godsend.
The final product turned out alot better than I expected. I've never made pasta so I was a little skeptical about how they may taste. Also, I don't necessary recommend the Sage Pesto if you are a fan of the normal and delicious Basil Pesto.....to which I am.
My favorite part of cooking with beets is it looks like a murder scene in the kitchen once you are done. Plus your hands make it seem like you are indeed the killer yourself. Bloooooood!
Hopefully this dinner will knock me out because my alarm is set for 345am and I'd like to get at LEAST 4 hours of sleep before I have to wake up. Wish me luck!
