Sweet Potato

Even with 50 restaurants in 2 blocks, tons of delivery options and a tiny kitchen, sometimes you still crave a home-cooked meal. So, last night I prepared an easy meal of sweet potato ravioli in a brown-butter sage sauce using the frozen, store-made ravioli we picked up in Little Italy (that reminded me of a tiny place in San Jose my Italian grandmother always went) last week.

I was really surprised by the taste. The slightly salty/sagy butter sauce was the perfect accompaniment and SO easy to prepare. Melt butter, brown butter, add sage, apply to ravioli. Even though some of the milk solids will burn if you don’t use clarified butter (which I don’t have at home), it still looks pretty good too:
