A chef once made me lasagna with tomato-free sauce. He cooked beets, peeled them, pureed them, and mixed in all the spagetti sauce spices, garlic, olive oil, etc., then made the lasagna using this beet sauce. The lasagna was wonderful. I don't have an exact recipe, but some experimentation may be kinda fun ;) You might also like Borscht - it is beet soup (to replace tomato soup).
