Tom's Tortellini with Garlic & Basil - Instructions

Cook tortellini per instructions on package. Prepare all other ingredients. With 5+/- minutes remaining
on the tortellini:

Heat butter and 2 tablespoons Extravagonzo on med/high (not too hot) till frothing upon swirl (not
barking and spitting), add crushed red pepper, ground pepper and salt into the oil. Add chopped garlic
and sauté until lightly roasted (light brown, NOT crunchy and dark), add basil to roasted garlic and
stir for 1/2 minute. Turn off heat and let sit in pan for 1-2 minutes (remove from burner if using an
electric stove). When tortellini are done, drain and add garlic mix immediately and finish with
remaining Extravagonzo. Mix well, let sit for a couple minutes and serve hot.
