Using Fresh Sage

If you have fresh sage growing in your garden and wonder what to do with it, try this 20 minute pasta recipe that gets you out of the kitchen fast in hot weather.  If you don’t have tortellini, use the sauce on plain spaghetti, it’s just as good. Serve with a protein-based salad or dessert, like this sliced cheese and tomato salad or custard. My husband says "I don't really miss meat - let's have this again."
Mushroom Sage Sauce With Tortellini
