Meatless Monday: Spicy Balsamic Beet Pasta

I love beet salads and beet appetizers.  My favorite combination is beets, goat cheese, and walnuts.  So when I was shopping at the grocery store and saw beet noodles, I thought that I could make a take on a beet salad, but with the noodles.  I made this recipe up on the fly and the first time it turned out amazing.  And the second, and third…you see where I’m going with this!  This has become one of my favorite quick and healthy recipes.  I serve as an appetizer, side, or serve up a larger portion for dinner!  Try this recipe and let me know what you think!
