Pink Spaghetti with Red onion and Plums

Already for some time I was thinking how to use the crazy beautiful and intense color of beetroots. I came up with this pink pasta idea. I kept it quite simple. You will just need 20min, a red onion, few dried plums, few capers and a handful of seeds. However the result is really interesting!
