I will from now on through forever make this as one of my signature family dinner eats!!!
One day last week I got the inch to make homemade pasta and I wanted to have a clear sauce on it instead of the traditional tomato base. Also, the week before I went to the garden shop and bought a lot of herbs. I have been wanting to do more cooking with FRESH herbs and with some I had never tried before.
Fortunately for me, I had just watched an episode on some channel about brown butter and sage. The lady was in some euphoric state that I had to try this myself.... I GET IT!!! This was so yummy and I will continue to fry sage leaves and have them in my garden if not for any other reason, but this one and that will do for me.
Brown Butter & Sage Sauce
- 1 stick of salted butter
- 1 handful of fresh sage (about a cup)
1. Wash sage to remove any dirt.
2. Melt butter in pan on High heat. Swirl it around until it is a med brown color. This should happen fairly quick...5 minutes once butter is all melted.
3. Add Sage leaves and watch them crisp up....30 sec to 1 minute. Remove and drizzle over cooked pasta and toss to coat the noodles. Serve immediately.
Note: Add some chicken or shrimp to this and WOW!!! What a meal that everyone will love and enjoy.
