 Pasta with Beets
 -------------------
 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
 3/4 c. onions, finely chopped
 2 T.  white wine
 2 cups beets, diced
 
 1/2 c. white wine
 1 t. oregano
 1/4 t. crushed red pepper, or to taste
 
 Saute onions and garlic in wine until fairly soft.  Add beets (I bet you 
 could add the greens here, too!) and cook for about five minutes.  Add 
 white wine and spices and cook until beets are tender.  Serve over pasta.
