Beetroot & Pear Pasta Salad

Beetroot & Pear Pasta Salad

pink pasta salad

Rather an unusual combination, this beetroot and pear pasta salad came from my love of mixing sweet and savoury. I adore the crisp sweetness of pear mixed with the cold, savoury guten free pasta.

Feel free to use normal pasta if you're not gluten sensitive, it works just as well of course! 

As well as being delightfully scrumptious, I adore the colour of this pasta salad. I mean, pink food really is the best isn't it?! Can I pull a mean girls and say "On Wednesdays we eat pink" ? (And literally any other day.)
