Bowtie Pasta with Mushroom Sauce
Maltagliati means badly cut, referring to randomly cut to soups. This conjures up visions of rustic charm but when I make them, I give them an element of elegance by adding pureed yellow beets to the dough, resulting in sunny, golden-hued pasta. The more common red beet can be substituted if yellow ones are not available.
The sauce, a combination of roasted carrots and shallots, adds texture and a slight sweet taste, while the beet tops, cooked along with the maltagliati, balance the sweetness with their sharpness and lend a wonderful color contrast. Save time by making the maltagliati ahead and drying them.
