Sage is an herb that I have growing in my garden. Not only can you use it in culinary dishes or yummy beverages, but sage is also an attractive addition to any garden. It’s easy to grow, easy to maintain, and dries very well for storing.

I like to make extra sage butter and keep some in the fridge to sprinkle over all kinds of things. This sage butter sauce can be used:

  • on spaghetti
  • ravioli
  • spread over bread
  • added to roasted vegetables
  • crush and sprinkle the cooked sage over eggs

  • 2 tablespoon fresh Parmesan cheese grated/more for serving
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice (optional)

4- Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, uncovered. The butter will brown perfectly as the sage and butter simmer together. YUMMMMM

5- Remove from heat and remove the sage, but don’t discard the sage.

 

6- Sprinkle in about a ½ cup of the crisp sage for more sage taste, if you prefer. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and lemon juice if using.

7- Season with a tiny amount of course salt and fresh ground black pepper. Stir.

8- Carefully drain the pasta. Arrange on a plate and spoon the sage sauce over top of the tortelloni or add the pasta to the pan and mix it all together  Sprinkle on freshly grated Parmesan cheese to taste. Serve hot.
