    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add about 1 Tbs. salt.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet, combine the butter and sage. Stir over low heat until the butter has melted.
    3. 3
      Add the cream and stock and bring to a boil; cook until the mixture lightly coats the back of a spoon, about 3 minute
    4. 4
      Season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Remove the sauce from the heat but keep it warm.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, cook the fettuccine until al dente, 10 to 12 minute
    7. 7
      With tongs, lift the pasta from the pot, let it drain for a moment over the boiling water, and then add it to the sauce in the skillet. (Alternatively, drain the pasta in a colander and add it to the sauce.)
    8. 8
      Cook gently on low for a few minutes for the pasta to absorb the sauce.
    9. 9
      Remove the pasta from the heat and stir in the grated cheese, and season amply with pepper.
    10. 10
      Serve in warmed bowls topped with the shaved ricotta.
