Sage Butter

This sounds ridiculously simple, but it's the perfect pairing with any pasta - even one where you want a hearty red sauce or a creamy, dreamy Alfredo.  I've paired this simple 5-minute, 4 ingredient recipe with homemade garlic, mushroom, and prosciutto stuffed ravioli and with store bought penne, with fantastic results.

Very inexpensive and easy to make, this works wonders on pasta and would pair nicely with pork loin, beef, and roasted chicken and turkey.

3 leaves of fresh sage ($.10)
1 1/2 T. butter ($.15)
1 T olive oil ($.10)
1 clove garlic, minced ($.05)

In a very small pan, add olive oil and butter, heat over low until the oil and butter has melted completely.  Add in sage leaves and garlic, let simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.  Turn off heat and let set for 3-5 minutes.

Drizzle over beef, pork, poultry, or pasta.

Yields - 1 batch
Cost: $.40
