This recipe for Ravioli in a Sage and Brown-Butter Sauce is packed with flavor and only requires a few ingredients and almost no time at all to prepare.

2 9-ounce packages butternut-squash ravioli or cheese ravioli
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
8 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Garnish: fresh sage leaves

Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil and cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
