Whole-grain spaghetti gets its striking color from a quick toss with pureed beets (a prime source of the phytonutrient betalain). Sun-dried tomatoes -- richer in lycopene than fresh ones -- lend the sauce a caramelized sweetness.

Ingredients

1 lb red beets, trimmed, scrubbed¼ cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling Coarse salt½ cup toasted walnuts1 Tbsp chopped tomatoes Red-pepper flakes12 oz farro spaghetti½ cup fresh ricotta

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle beets with oil and season with salt. Wrap tightly in foil and roast until tender, 1 hour. Peel and chop once cool.
  2. Pulse beets, walnuts, and tomatoes in a food processor. Season with salt and red-pepper flakes.
  3. Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup water, and return to pot.
  4. Toss with beet mixture, adding pasta water until creamy. Serve with ricotta, a drizzle of oil, and red-pepper flakes.
