1 24-ounce package fresh cheese ravioli
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
16 fresh sage leaves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan


Cook the ravioli according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until it foams. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium, add the sage, and cook until the leaves turn crisp, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with the salt and pepper.

Return the drained ravioli to the pot, add the butter and sage, and toss gently. Add 1/2 cup of the Parmesan and toss again.

Divide among individual bowls and top with the remaining Parmesan.
