"Red beets are boiled until just tender, then sliced and smothered in pesto before being roasted in the oven."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I was more interested in the method in this recipe as opposed to the ingredients. I don't have pesto right now, and although I could have made it, I didn't really feel like it. I just used minced garlic instead, and it was a hit. These beets are good roasted! Thanks for the recipe!
I like this cooking method for beets although I use the microwave rather than the stove top.
How the recipe turns out, though, will depend on your pesto. Mine is strongly garlic and I found the garlic clashed with the beet rather than complementing it. I prefer a mix of olive oil, salt, pepper and either sage or thyme rather than the pesto. YMMV.
All the pesto melted away during cooking, so these just tasted like roasted beets.
I love beets and was looking for a new recipe. I followed this one and everyone loved the beets! Thank you for sharing! Pesto + beets = delicious!
A definite hit in this family!
Not bad, but did not have much of the pesto flavor.
