These rosy-hued beet gnocchi are as delicious as they are beautiful.

Author and blogger Béatrice Peltre has a new collection of recipes out that will have you craving French food like never before. One of the most appealing factors of French food is that it’s made at home for family — like this dish for her daughter. Though France’s fine-dining scene has garnered world renown, it’s eating at one’s own dining table that’s the real treat.

Like many of her six-year-old girlfriends, Lulu loves the color pink. And since she adores gnocchi, I created this recipe for her. The bright fuchsia dumplings against the delicate white in the sauce are simply stunning and oh so appetizing!

Note: If you are serving this dish in the summer, add freshly cooked corn sliced off the cob. Toss in some lightly sautéed langoustines for a more substantial meal.
