500 g plain white flour, 3 bunches beetroot, trimmed (500 g), 500 g ricotta cheese, 4 eggs, 1/2 onion, marjoram, greeted Parmesan cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper.
Combine the flour with a small amount of lukewarm water, the salt and a few tablespoons oil and knead until a smooth, but not too soft, dough forms. Divide the dough into 6 pieces, one of which is slightly larger than the others. Cover with a kitchen cloth and allow to rest for at least one hour. Clean the beetroot, cut into strips and brown in a saucepan in which the onion and garlic have already been gently fried. At the end of cooking time, place in a bowl and add the marjoram, 1 tablespoon flour and 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and salt.
Grease the bottom of an oven-proof dish and line with the larger piece of dough, which has been rolled out with a rolling pin until very thin and slightly larger than the dish. Grease with a bit of extra-virgin olive oil and repeat the same procedure at least twice.
