It grows like a weed in our backyard. I need a good recipe to use all of it up.

back when i lived in new york and had the best grocery stores of all time + a full kitchen i would make both of these recipes in one week from the hunk of sage i would buy. and that pasta is delish!!

Brown butter sage sauce: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mario-batali/butter-and-sage-sauce-recipe/index.html

You can put it on pasta (gnocci, ravioli). It is excellent with butternut squash ravioli. Sometimes I put shallots in too.

I love to dump sage and rosemary by the bushel full into lentil soup. I start with a ham bone and boil it down for hours, then add chicken broth, lentils, veggies like carrots and celery and herbs. Because it is an old family recipe, I don't actually have it written down, but Martha has a similar one here:http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/red-lentil-soup-with-sage-and-bacon

By the way, your composition on that photo is gorgeous, friend!
