When cooking the pasta, starch is released into the water; that starchy pasta water helps to thicken this sauce, without adding extra ingredients!
Wash and dry all produce.* Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Mince or grate the garlic. Strip a few rosemary leaves from the stems and finely chop 1 tbsp. Finely chop the chives. Roughly chop the arugula. Wearing kitchen gloves (if you have them, so you don't stain your hands), grate the beets.
Meanwhile, add the fusilli to the boiling water and cook until tender, 10-12 min. In a medium bowl, whisk together half the chives, half the rosemary, 1 tbsp vinegar and 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the goat cheese and gently stir to coat. Set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the walnuts to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer walnuts to a plate and set aside.
Add a drizzle of oil to the same pan, then the onions, garlic and remaining rosemary. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, 3-4 min. Meanwhile, when the pasta is tender, reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, then drain the pasta and set aside.
Add beets, fusilli, remaining vinegar and reserved pasta water to the onion-rosemary mixture. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is warmed through and coats the pasta, 1-2 min. Remove the pan from the heat and add the arugula. Stir until wilted, 1-2 min.
Divide the pasta between bowls. Spoon over the marinated goat cheese. Drizzle over the remaining herb oil, then sprinkle over the walnuts and remaining chives.
