Fusilli with Creamy Sage Sauce Recipe

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

The taste of sage adds a new layer of flavor to the traditional creamy pasta sauce. The fusilli adds funky twists to the presentation.

Fusilli with Creamy Sage Sauce

Ingredients

  • 6 Tbs butter, unsalted
  • 16 fresh sage leaves
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, freshly grated
  • 4 oz chevré goat cheese
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  • salt
  • 1 pound long fusilli pasta

Directions

  1. Follow the directions on How to Cook Pasta.
  2. In a large skillet, over low heat, melt the butter.
  3. Add the sage leaves and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add the cream and chicken broth, raising the heat to medium-low.
  5. Add the chevré cheese and stir well.
  6. Bring the cream mixture to a low boil. Continue to cook until the mixture lightly coats a spoon when dipped in the sauce. This should take about 5 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Add the cooked fusilli to the sauce.
  9. Add the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and stir, allowing to cook for 1 minute.
  10. Serve in bowls with additional grated cheese if desired.

Note: Experiment with different pasta shapes, but use a thicker pasta to hold the sauce. Spaghetti is too thin for this sauce, it is similar to Fettuccine Alfredo.

Bella Italian Food Recommends

Pontano Herbs Sage
Nothing beats the flavor of fresh herbs. Many cooks opt to grow their own herbs in a small kitchen garden. If you're like me, and have a black thumb instead of a green one don't despair. You can purchase fresh herbs from a local store. If your local store does not carry fresh herbs, the magic of the Internet will bring them to you. These fresh sage leave will perk up your dishes and provide essential vitamins as well.
