Beets are back in style. Long thought of as the food of older generations, or deemed too messy to deal with, beets have come back with the help of great chefs across the world. A culinary staple for thousands of years, beets are among the more striking of vegetables, ranging in hues from yellow to dark crimson and all colors in between. There are even some varieties that resemble a bull's-eye. I usually roast beets and dress them with olive oil and a splash of vinegar, but sometimes I want to do a little more.

When they opened their Owings Mills oasis for fine dining back in 1988, owners Ellen and Linwood Dame called it Linwood's Cafe-Grille. Over the years, the name has been streamlined. Even the apostrophe has been plucked out. It is now simply Linwoods, and the restaurant is doing today what it has always done, which basically comes down to giving a demanding clientele what it wants without making it seem condescending or patronizing. That's no easy trick, and Linwoods makes it all appear smooth and easy.

Nobody asked me, but ... It probably wasn't the greatest idea - opening an Asian buffet in Little Italy. Somebody tried that this summer at the corner of Albemarle and Pratt, in what used to be Velleggia's restaurant. They put up a sign and a dragon statue and opened the doors for lunch and dinner. That was in June. Next thing I knew, the place was dark. Just goes to show: One should never try to sell wontons where people are looking for ravioli. Ravioli always wins. -o- Now that a federal judge's ruling will make it possible for more Marylanders to carry handguns, we should require them to display their licenses on their outer garments or hats.

Twice a year, in March and November, St. Leo the Great, a Roman Catholic parish in Little Italy, hosts a ravioli and spaghetti dinner fundraiser. And every year, volunteers gather at the parish's former school building to prepare tens of thousands of ravioli. Take a look at scenes from a past marathon ravioli-making, and meatball-making, session at St. Leo's. It's almost ravioli time at St. Leo's [Pictures]

Novices and masters gathered to make ravioli at St. Leo's Roman Catholic Church on Saturday. After cranking out 3,600 ravioli last weekend, they planned to finish this weekend with about 12,000 of the plump pouches of seasoned ricotta. Next Saturday, they will roll meatballs out of 400 pounds of beef and pork. And next Sunday, they'll serve it all up in a grand Italian dinner. Stephanie Bronner appeared mesmerized by Mary Jean DeLauney's hands, which folded one pouch of ricotta after another even as their owner's mouth carried on a lively conversation with three neighbors.

Item: Wolfgang Puck's RavioliWhat you get: 1 serving (2 cups)Cost: $5.99Preparation time: 45-60 minutes in conventional oven, 5-7 minutes in the microwave.Review: Puck has marketed his frozen pizza in groceries for years and now adds ravioli to his line. This isn't the canned ravioli your kids like. It's a dish worthy of Spago's, the California restaurant where Puck is chef: Just be sure not to overcook. We tried the four cheese ravioli with tomato, basil and garlic sauce (plenty of rich cheese)

* Item: Hamburger Helper Ravioli* What you get: 7.7 ounces, or 5 servings* Cost: $1.89* Preparation time: About 30 minutes, stove top or microwave* Review: Hamburger Helper, the skillet-dinner mix that rose to fame during the inflationary 1970s, is out to lure you with a new flavor. OK, so inflation's in check, but this ravioli practically cooks itself. I'd rate the taste halfway between ravioli from a can and the higher-priced refrigerated variety. Wish they'd put some cheese inside the pasta, but a sprinkle of your own mozzarella or Parmesan will suffice.

This delicious variation on tapenade requires no cooking and can be used in any number of dishes. Tapenade, which originated in Provence, France, is basically a paste of olives, capers, anchovies and garlic.Our fresh tomato version of tapenade can be used on pasta as well as seafood, poultry, eggs or even potatoes.Top the salad with a selection of beans (maybe from a supermarket's salad bar) for variety and nutrition.Our delectable dessert turns out to be as simple as an assembly; again no cooking necessary.

Convenience products often mean sacrificing quality for timesavings. But that's not true with the refrigerated and frozen tortellini and ravioli available in supermarkets. These Italian pastas are a tasty development in the world of fast food.You can buy them with a variety of fillings -- beef and garlic, chicken and rosemary, mushroom, cheese and basil -- to name a few. They cost about $3.40 for a 9-ounce package (that's quite a bit more than you pay for dried pasta -- you can get a pound for about 50 cents -- but they are filled, fresh and quite a bit better)

The problem in Little Italy is not its fractious nature. Sitting in any of its community meetings, one understands why post-World War II Italy underwent 30-plus successive governments. Italians - passionate about everything - often engage in fierce debates and disagreements at community meetings, but when it comes to supporting the church and the neighborhood, those same adversaries work together, turning 750 pounds of ground beef into meatballs, producing more than 15,000 ravioli for the spaghetti/ravioli dinner, cooking up hundreds of pounds of dough and calzones for the festivals.

Item: Contadina Chicken & Rosemary RavioliWhat you get: 2 1/2 servings (9 ounces)Cost: $3.99Preparation time: About 12 minutes.Review: I rate this flavor tops among the new flavors of pricey but tasty refrigerated fresh pastas from Contadina. The others I tried -- Mushroom Tortelloni, Four Cheese Ravioli, Sweet Italian Sausage Tortelloni and Garden Vegetable Ravioli Light -- offer a pleasant departure from routine pastas, especially the Sweet Italian Sausage. But the Chicken & Rosemary stirred my taste buds; it was delicious even without a sauce.

* Item: Weight Watchers Smart Ones* What you get: 1 serving* Cost: About $3* Preparation time: About 8 minutes* Review: When a fellow shopper saw me plucking these from the frozen foods, she couldn't help but sing their praises. I was psyched for quick, epicurean, low-fat dinners. The penne pollo (strips of grilled chicken, tomatoes and broccoli in a basil garlic sauce with penne pasta) won my approval. It cooked quickly, looked appealing and tasted distinctive. But the ravioli Florentine didn't score so well.

At St. Leo's Roman Catholic Church in Little Italy, parishioners call Lucy Pompa the matriarch of meatballs, ravioli and the thick red sauce she calls gravy. She presided yesterday over an assembly line of volunteers, joining them in making about 6,000 meatballs that will be added to hundreds of gallons of spicy tomato sauce for the church's biannual spaghetti and ravioli supper today. Pompa, 88, and several other women had earlier kneaded homemade dough into 14,000 pasta squares and stuffed them with ricotta cheese.

That big, inflatable pumpkin is out front again at the governor's mansion, and this year, I'm not taking the bait. My loyal readers (Mom, Dad) will remember the fury I unleashed a year ago, when I wrote that historic Annapolis is kind of persnickety about holiday decorations, and that the blow-ups at Government House were a little "Arbutus." I'd like to put Inflatagate behind me, so let me just say that in the past year I've gotten to know a lot of Arbutans, and they're all nice - if overly fond of air-filled lawn displays.
