Ravioli W/Browned Butter, Sage or Basil and Pine Nuts

“The recipe is easy and I hope you love it as much as my family does. I first got this recipe from the Food Network/ Giada DeLaurentis and tweaked it some & omitted some ingredients. I would suggest using a ravioli that has a delicate flavor so that it is not overpowering (mushroom, chicken) It is so tasty it makes a nice dinner for guests.”
