Ingredients

  • 9 oz. about 11 fresh or frozen spinach ricotta cheese ravioli
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter cold
  • 1 cup 2-3 oz fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoon fresh parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice optional
  • coarse salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • fresh parmesan cheese grated for serving

Instructions

  • Prepare the ravioli by bringing 5 quarts of water to a boil. Salt lightly. Boil the fresh ravioli for 6-8 min; if frozen follow the package instructions.
  • While the ravioli is boiling, melt the butter over low heat in an 8 inch sauce pan. Add the fresh sage all at once. Stir as the sage wilts into the butter. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Uncovered. The butter will brown perfectly as the sage and butter simmer together. Remove from heat and remove the sage. Sprinkle in a little of the crisp sage for more sage taste, if you prefer. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and lemon juice if using. Season with a tiny amount of course salt and fresh ground black pepper. Stir.
  • Carefully drain the pasta. Arrange on a plate. Spoon the sage sauce over top the ravioli. Sprinkle on freshly grated parmesan cheese to taste. Serve hot.
