Browned Butter Macaroni

Are you familiar with browned butter?  It is something that is simply amazing.  The flavor of it is nutty and slightly sweet.  It is a total cinch to make too - you just need butter and little bit of patience.  And by a little, you can have it made (browned) in less than 10-15 minutes.  Boo-ya!  That's my kind of homemade sauce :)

Now what to do with it?  Well, add some sage and splash cream, stir, and toss with pasta.  Bam!  Best macaroni ever.  No lie.  Try it.  You will be addicted.

Browned Butter Macaroni
Serves 4-6

1/2 Pound Dry Macaroni
6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
2 Tablespoons Cream or 1/2 and 1/2
1/2 Tablespoon Dried Sage
Parmesan Cheese

Step 1:  Prepare macaroni according to the package.

Step 2:  While macaroni is cooking, in a small saucepan - add the butter.  Cook on stove top over medium/low heat.  And just let it sit and melt.  Stir occasionally.  It will begin to froth a little - which is fine.  Stir it, you will notice the color changing and little brown bits accumulating on the bottom of the pan.  This is totally what you want!  Add in the cream and sage.  Stir to combine.

Step 3:  Drain the pasta.  Add to bowl and then pour the butter sauce over the macaroni.  Stir to combine.  Top with Parmesan cheese to serve.  Enjoy!
