Browned Butter and Olive Oil with Fresh Herbs over Rainbow Cheese Tortelloni

Serving Size:  2-3


12 oz. Pappardelle's Rainbow Cheese Tortelloni
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup your choice of herbs: basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, etc. (optional)


  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat. Stir or swirl pan until butter turns golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add olive oil.
  2. Add fresh herbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and parsley.
  3. Meanwhile, cook tortellloni in 4 quarts of water for each pound. Add a hearty pinch of salt. Bring water to a full boil, reduce heat and add tortelloni. Occasionally stir gently to prevent tortelloni from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Once water returns to a gentle boil, cook about 8-12 minutes. Drain carefully, or simply use a slotted spoon to remove the tortelloni individually from the pot.
  4. Drizzle sauce over tortelloni.
