Brown Butter Sage Tortellini

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I usually dont buy sage, but I seen in produce section so I grabbed it. Now time to use it. I found this recipe from a blogger that visits Italy often, and this recipe is always on the menu at restaurants.
I was so excited because I purchased tortellinis and raviolis they were buy one get one.
Very easy and tastey recipe. And I didnt have to run to the store I had everything on hand. This can also be used with any kind pasta. I might make with raviolis too!
