Porcini Tortelloni with Brown Butter & Sage Sauce

Porcini Tortelloni with Brown Butter & Sage Sauce
This recipe comes right off the package of President's Choice Porcini Mushroom Tortelloni, my favorite store bought fresh pasta.

Prep time: as long as it takes to boil water
Actual cooking time: 2-3 minutes
Serves 2

1 package Porcini Mushroom Tortelloni (I'm sure any fresh pasta would work with this simple sauce)
2-3 tbsp butter
3 fresh sage leaves, whole
Freshly grated Parmesan
Salt & Freshly ground pepper

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil

2. Add pasta to the boiling water gently and cook for 1-2 minutes and drain.

3. In the meantime, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add the sage leaves and allow the butter to brown slightly. Remove the sage leaves after 30 seconds or so.

4. Add the drained pasta to the skillet, toss and transfer to a serving bowl.

Add grated cheese, salt & pepper and serve.
