A simple yet delicious pasta recipe using butter and sage as main ingredients for the sauce.
Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 10 minutes, Serves: 4 


8 Tbsp butter
A bunch of fresh sage leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 lb of spaghetti (for 4)
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese to serve


Wash and pat dry the sage leaves. Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium to low heat add the butter and melt. Add the sage leaves and cook very gently over low heat. Do not burn the butter. Season with black pepper and salt, if using unsalted butter.

In the meantime cook the pasta, al dente, according to instructions on the packaging. Drain and reserve some of the cooking water. Return the pasta to a big bowl or the pot used for cooking and pour over the butter and sage sauce. Toss well until the pasta is well coated with the sauce. If the pasta is too dry, use one or two tablespoons of the reserved cooking water.

Serve in individual plates with freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top.
