This was incredibly good. Frying the sage leaves is tricky. Mine certainly got too dark. We’ll need to practice that. I wasn’t sure how the kids would take to this, what with having whole sage leaves in it, and them being fuzzy and all. They seemed to like it. For me, it had excellent flavor, was easy to prepare and made for a quick and simple summer heat wave dinner. Grocery stores being as they are, and mine deigning to never carry anything I need, did not have nice small 9 ounce bags of ravioli in the frozen section (likely in the refrigerated, but experience has taught me that they also come with a significant price hike.) The store brand, however, came in a nice large bag, that was more than double what I needed! Works for me. You could increase the butter amounts, I chose not too and it was plenty flavorful.
