Penne and browned butter sauce


  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

  1. In a small saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt over medium-low heat. Add 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage and cook, stirring often, until the butter begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons heavy cream and remove from the heat. Add 1/2 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese when tossing with pasta.
  2. Start with browned butter. Add 1/2 cup chopped onion with the sage and cook until golden, then add 3/4 cup chopped frozen spinach and cook for 3 minutes; stir in 1/2 cup ricotta with the cream.

Penne noodles because they have cool shape and browned butter sauce because it sounds delicious.

Origin: Italy

Color: tri(green,orange and yellow

How made:

STEP 1 - Beat or whisk an egg until it’s smooth. (No whisk? Just use a fork.)

STEP 2 - Use a sharp knife to chop your thin-rolled pasta dough into 1½-inch squares.

STEP 3 - Take one of these squares and dab a small blob of egg on one corner. (To dab, either use an egg brush, kitchen paper or a clean finger.)

STEP 4 - Place the stem of a teaspoon or clean pencil on the opposite corner of the pasta square.

Now roll the square diagonally back on itself, wrapping the pasta around the spoon/pencil.

When you reach the opposite eggy corner, push down to stick the pasta together and slide out the spoon.

Finito! That’s one ‘garganello’ made - just repeat until they’re all done.

Thomas Jefferson brought it in the late 1700s
