In a heavy-bottomed sauce pan, lightly brown 3 cloves of crushed or minced garlic in 2 Tbsp of pure olive oil. Stir in 3/4 lb of chopped tomatillos and 2 good-sized sprigs of fresh basil. When the tomatillos have released a lot of liquid, and the mixture begins to boil, stir in salt, reduce heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Uncover and add 3/4 lb of cooked, puréed beets. Heat until just beginning to boil again. Serve over gluten-free pasta with freshly grated parmesan.
