There are many recipes that use sage. It can never be missing out on roasts and kebabs, because it combines very well the taste of the meat, especially red ones.

Wanting to try a use different from the usual, you can put it in the mixture of finely chopped eggs and flour used to make pasta and noodles and season them.

The ideal use is on some fish like trout and sole cooked in butter, but it also combines very well with white meats, such as using it as a flavoring for stuffing rolls, and borlotti beans or cannellini beans and pork in general.
