I was practically licking my plate after making Beet Pappardelle With Scallops. It was so good I wanted seconds..and thirds.
I knew it was going to make a tasty meal prep, so I used the leftover beet puree to make this Vegetarian Beet Pappardelle Meal Prep. You can save a lot of time by making the beet puree ahead of time. It can stay in the refrigerator for up to a week and can also be frozen.
When I begin thinking about meal prepping, I always try to think of budget friendly ingredients. And what’s more budget friendly than pasta and vegetables?
In addition to looking for a budget friendly meal prep, I was also searching for colorful ingredients. We eat with our eyes first and the beet puree mixed with pappardelle ads an eye popping color. Besides being beautiful vegetables, they’re also quite good for you too.

When making this Vegetarian Beet Pappardelle Meal Prep, I suggest making the beet puree ahead of time. This recipe will make about two cups of beet puree. Use the leftover beet puree in something like this Beet Pappardelle With Scallops or risotto.
As always, I packed these up in my BPA free, microwave and oven safe glass meal prep containers that I snagged off Amazon. Who else is guilty of buying literally everything off Amazon?
Your co-workers are going to be so jealous when you show up with this for lunch. I know mine were!
