I saw Rachael make this on her daytime show. Had to try it, with adjustments. Very good and not a huge ingredient list.

DH and I enjoyed this recipe last night for dinner. It was rich and delicious. I really enjoyed the complimentary flavors of sprouts, sage, butter and nutmeg. I used fresh sage from my garden and 3 cloves of garlic. We definitely needed the reserved pasta water, which when added, was perfect for the texture. Thanks for posting!
