Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Add beets, along with 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Toss to combine Center beets on a sheet (12x18 inches) of foil. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Roast beets until cooked through, 35-45 minutes.
Remove from oven. Open packets carefully by cutting along top fold with a sharp knife, allowing steam to escape; then open top of foil packet. Let beets rest until they are cool enough to touch. Then peel and chop them into 1/3 inch pieces. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
In a large bowl combine the ricotta, feta, 3 tablespoons olive oil, parsley, lemon zest and shallots. Beat with a whisk until well combined and fluffy. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the creamy feta on a serving platter and top with the beets. Sprinkle the chopped pistachios over the top and serve with toasted baguette slices for dipping.
