penne pasta with sage butter

If you have access to any homegrown or foraged sage, this recipe works out as 16p per generous adult portion…

Serves 4.

Cook 400g Smartprice pasta
Chop one large onion, and fry in 75g of real butter, with 15-20 leaves of fresh sage, finely chopped, until the onion is translucent and the butter is gently nut brown. Stir through the drained pasta. Season with a little salt, and freshly ground black pepper.

Delight yourself in the greasy chin and ease of making this delicious dish.

CFR would like to thank reader LLG for the inspiration.



  1. LLG would like to thank CFR for all the wonderful recipes.

  2. You can reduce the price per portion by using concentrated butter from Morrisons or Tesco.

    • Heather where on the website can I find that please? it sounds good!
