My thoughts on cooking are taking something like fresh pulled from your garden beets and creating simple healthy meal from it using what I have in my own kitchen. This dish was created in the moment, I had no idea what I was going to make other then I though, rice pasta would be great option on an Italian menu and I have these gorgeous beets. I would serve this to a friend, even an Italian friend for a light and simple lunch.
