Thinking Outside the Noodle – Fresh Sage Pasta Dough – Part I of 3

Home made Sage Pasta

Time for another series on “Thinking Outside the Noodle”.  This series features fresh sage, a herb that goes quite well with some of my favorite fall/winter ingredients such as Butternut Squash, Pears and Gorgonzola cheese, which will be featured in my next recipe in Part 2 of this Series.  If you haven’t tried making pasta yet, give it a try, you’ll be so happy you did and wonder why it took you so long to try it!  Enjoy!
