Our September Video of the Month Recipe is our Cheesy Tortellini with Brown Butter and Sage Sauce. This recipe might sound challenging to make but it is quite easy and of course delicious. We’ve added mushrooms and spinach to create a well-balanced meal.  This vegetarian meal is suitable for an elegant dinner at home with your loved one.




Add the tortellini to a pot of boiling water. Cook for 5 minutes.  Scoop and reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water for the sauce. Drain the rest of the water and set it to the side.

Meanwhile, add the butter to a large skillet over medium-low heat until melted. Add garlic and chopped walnuts and cook for 3-5 minutes until brown. Add in sage.

Next, add in spinach and mushrooms and your reserved water. Allow the spinach and mushrooms to shrink in size.

Add the tortellini into the skillet and toss to coat.

Serve the tortellini with a generous amount of grated parmesan, crushed red pepper flakes, and black pepper.

NOTE: If you are not a fan of spinach, perhaps broccoli would be a tasty alternative.
