Browned Butter Tortellini with Sage and Sautéed Bratwurst


¼ cup Dierbergs butter
4 Dierbergs Signature Traditional Bratwurst links, casing removed
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves
Freshly ground black pepper
1 package (16 ounces) Dierbergs frozen tri-color cheese tortellini, cooked according to package directions and drained
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup frozen baby peas, thawed
Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 package (2 ounces) pine nuts, toasted
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


In large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat; cook stirring often until butter just starts to brown, about 5 minutes. (Watch carefully so butter does not burn.)

Crumble bratwurst into skillet with browned butter. Add garlic and sage; cook stirring occasionally until meat is browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Season with pepper.

Stir in tortellini and lemon juice; cook until heated through.

Stir in peas and red pepper flakes.
