Brown Butter, Sage, and Mushroom Pasta

serves 4

prep time: 10 minutes

cooking time: 15 minutes

1 stick of butter

7 - 8 large sage leaves, chopped

1 lb white or cremini mushrooms, sliced

salt and pepper to taste

4 servings pasta

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of water to boil.

Heat a large frying pan on med-high heat. Once hot, add the butter. The butter should initially sizzle and foam, and turn a light golden color. Once this happens, add the sage and mushrooms. Continue frying until the mushrooms are soft and golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.

While the mushrooms are cooking, add the pasta to the water and cook until al dente.

Once the pasta is done, drain, and add to the frying pan with the mushrooms. Toss. Add 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Serve warm with additional cheese on the side. Pasta is best eaten immediately while still warm.
