  1. Place the beets in a large saucepan and cover with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the beets are just tender, about 30 minutes. Drain, and allow the beets to cool until you are able to handle them. Peel and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices, then toss with the pesto in a bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Spread the beets out onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the beets are hot and have turned slightly brown around the edges, 10 to 15 minutes.

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.
