February’s Recipe

This Beetroot & Goat Cheese Pasta with Lemony Rocket blends roasted beets into a vibrant and flavourful pasta sauce. It’s a showstopper of a vegetarian meal!

YOU’LL LEARN THROUGH MAKING THIS RECIPE

  1. A creative way to celebrate vegetables. The texture of certain cooked veggies can make a great pasta sauce base. Using beets in this way introduces unique flavours and fun natural colours to your pasta sauce, as well as a nutritional boost with essential vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.
  2. Roasting to deepen flavour. Roasting beetroot and garlic concentrates their natural sugars through caramelisation (a process where sugars are heated). This results in a rich, earthy sweetness and a tender texture that adds depth and complexity. Simple, but a game changer technique in a dish like this!

The Prize

February prize is one for the coffee connoisseurs. Up for grabs is the exquisite Bialetti x Dolce & Gabbana Moka Express 6-cup and Perfetto Moka Irresistible Coffee & Tin (RRP: $265)☕. Here’s why I love it:

  • Totally iconic. Since its debut in 1930, the Bialetti Moka Pot has become a symbol of Italian coffee culture. Known for its durability, reliability, and renowned timeless aesthetic, it’s a cult classic.
  • Elevate your cuppa. The iconic brewer doesn’t just craft darn good coffee (think rich, robust and flavourful🙏); it transforms the brewing experience into a dreamy, hands-on and ritualistic affair.
  • She’s a beauty. Drawing inspiration from the elaborate folklore patterns of the Carretto Siciliano (aka Sicilian cart), the Bialetti x Dolce & Gabana collab pays tribute to Sicily’s artistic crafts, landscapes, and vibrant colours—something at the heart of Dolce & Gabbana’s aesthetic.

Best of Luck!

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries. I hope you enjoy making this recipe, and most importantly – happy eating.
