  • 2 9-ounce packages butternut-squash ravioli or cheese ravioli
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 8 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh sage leaves


Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil and cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook butter, gently shaking the pan occasionally, until it foams and turns nut-brown, about 3 minutes.
Add sage and red-pepper flakes; then cook 30 seconds longer, or until sage is crisp. Remove pan from heat.
Add cooked pasta to skillet; then toss with butter sauce to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with fresh sage leaves. Serve immediately.
