It is so easy and quick to prepare. Walnuts (pecans work too), fresh sage, butter, yummy cheese stuffed tortellini, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. I could eat this every day.
The recipe also calls for a sweet, syrupy balsamic drizzle. I've made it with and without it and enjoyed it either way. Of course I'd suggest making these breadsticks to go along with it. If you have the time...
So delicious. What are you waiting for? Go make this! :)

For the Balsamic Drizzle:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
1 bay leaf
For the pasta:
6 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sage leaves
1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1 pound cheese tortellini
1 cup pasta water
To make the syrup: Combine the balsamic vinegar, honey, and bay leaf in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, put a large pot of water for boil for the pasta. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the sage and chopped walnuts/pecans. Cook 3 minutes. Add the pasta-cooking water and cook until reduced by half, 2 minutes. Toss with 1 pound cooked tortellini, some grated parmesan and salt. Drizzle with the balsamic syrup if desired.
