Butternut squash ravioli (You can make your own, or buy the frozen kind if you’re in a rush)

Cook the pasta and set it aside.

In a large saute pan, melt the butter. Add the sage to the butter and continue to cook until the butter starts to brown. Remove the sage leaves and add the brussels sprouts, pecans, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Cook until the sprouts are lightly browned.

Quickly toss the pasta in the pan just to heat it up. Dish it onto plates and sprinkle with cheese.
