Adadpted from a Buitoni recipe, this tortellini is a nice change with its nutty brown butter sauce. Quick and easy to prepare!

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If possible, use fresh sage and freshly grated Parmesan to heighten the flavor of this dish. Makes a huge difference!
  2. Cook cheese tortellini according to package instructions; drain. (You can start on the sauce while the tortellini is cooking).
  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. 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.).
