Hey all,

How do I plot equations of x and y that can't necessarily be turned into functions?

For example, plotting a circle:
unitCircle = x^2 + y^2 == 1;

What's the Mathematica statement that will take unitCircle as an argument and plot it?

Please note: "parameterize it by hand" is NOT the right answer. I'm looking for an easy way out :)
