    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      If possible, use fresh sage and freshly grated Parmesan to heighten the flavor of this dish. Makes a huge difference!
    2. 2
      Cook cheese tortellini according to package instructions; drain. (You can start on the sauce while the tortellini is cooking).
    3. 3
      Heat butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add sage and slowly cook butter until it begins to brown. (It's okay if the sage darkens and gets crunchy).
    4. 4
      Remove from heat; add the hot tortellini. Stir to coat; add parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and toss. (If you choose to add sun-dried tomatoes, add them in with the cheese, salt, and pepper before tossing.).

      A gourmet tasting recipe with minimum effort. I used chicken tortellini for a one pot meal that not only was very satisfying but also let me use up all of the sage I purchased for holiday cooking. Thank you.

      We LOVE this dish. It is so comforting and delicious. When I come home late from work or traveling this is most often our dinner because it is so quick and simple. When making this recipe please keep in mind that the success or failure depends upon tossing the pasta with the browned butter before adding the grated parmesan, finely chopped SDT, salt and pepper. This is a perfect meal everyone should try. Thank you for sharing!

      I think this recipe needs some editing-- Sun dried tomatoes are listed in the ingredients, yet the recipe doesn't say what to do with them!
