Beets, goat cheese and earthy greens make for a perfectly balanced, delicious trio. This gourmet recipe showcases fresh linguine infused with beets, which lend notes of sweetness and gorgeous color to the pasta—and to the cooking water, used in the lemon-butter sauce. With seasonal chard (a leafy relative of the beet) and garnishes of goat cheese and toasted walnuts, this wintry dish is as comforting as it is sophisticated.

Toast the walnuts:
2 Toast the walnuts:

Heat a large, dry pan on medium-high until hot. Add the walnuts and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 3 minutes, or until toasted and fragrant. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.

Start the vegetables:
3 Start the vegetables:

In the pan used to toast the walnuts, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened and lightly browned.

Finish the vegetables:
4 Finish the vegetables:

Add the garlic and chard stems to the pan of onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the chard leaves and lemon zest; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the chard leaves have wilted.

Cook the pasta:
5 Cook the pasta:

While the vegetables cook, using your hands, carefully separate the strands of the pasta; add to the pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until just shy of al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving ¾ cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

6 Finish & plate your dish:

To the pan of vegetables, add the cooked pasta, butter, mint (roughly chopping just before adding), the juice of all 4 lemon wedges and ½ cup of the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook, stirring frequently to coat the pasta, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining pasta cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the finished pasta between 2 dishes. Garnish with the goat cheese, Parmesan cheese and toasted walnuts. Enjoy!
