In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook 1 pound cheese tortellini (fresh or frozen), according to package instructions; drain.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter until light brown in color, with a nutty smell, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove pan from heat. Add 16 fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced; fry (off heat) until crispy, about 1 minute.
Gently toss tortellini with brown-butter mixture. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
