Creamy Rosemary Penne with Chicken & Beets with Brussels Sprouts

I thought this was going to be a disaster. I was looking for a fast and cozy meal for a dark and rainy day, and it just seemed to take FOREVER to cook everything. The veggie recipe called for golden beets, and our grocery store didn't have any, so I subbed some red ones, not taking into account that pinky red was going to get everywhere. Really though, it didn't turn out that bad, and you can't really see the pink dots on the pasta, nor the weird color the onions and brussels sprouts turned. The pasta was yummy, and Ben said that the brussels sprouts weren't bad (translate: he ate two whole halves! LOL). Overall, this meal was ok, but I wasn't overly impressed.
