Recipe type: Dinner/Pasta
Serves: 3
  • 2, 9 ounce packages pumpkin ravioli (regular or butternut squash ravioli will work too.)
  • ¾ pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 handfuls of fresh kale, stems removed and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • Shaved parmesan cheese
  • Fresh sage (dried sage will work, too)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. While the water is coming to a boil, brown the sausage in a saute pan over medium to medium-high heat until crispy. Use a spoon to break it up into small pieces. Add kale and cook until slightly wilted.
  3. Add the stick of butter to a small sauce pan and place over medium-low heat. Melt butter. Once melted, turn heat to medium and bring to a sizzle stirring constantly until it starts to slightly brown and smell nutty. Careful not to burn! Pour into a glass bowl so it doesn't continue to brown.
  4. Cook pasta according to package directions - usually only takes a few minutes which is why I like to wait until the very end.
  5. Assemble dish by placing pumpkin ravioli on a plate, top with sausage, kale, pine nuts then drizzle with browned butter and garnish with parmesan cheese and chopped sage.
