Karen makes the ravioli from scratch. She roasted off two the other day and froze it for just that meal. We use the sage from our "herb garden".

"herb garden"? Why the quote marks?

I worked with this Italian woman from Brooklyn who put some in her meatballs, which floated in her sauce. I don't think that she put sage directly into the sauce though.

They are in pots on our front porch. Not like they used to grow at our old house of 22 years, planted in the ground.

My sage grew like a weed last year. All I needed was about 10 leaves. Wish there was more I could do with it. I guess I can give the surplus to my buddy to make his sauce.

Has anyone ever put Sage In their Tomato Sauce?

I feel your pain, Larry. For some reason, I have to replant my beloved thyme every year due to winter kill, but my sage and oregano grow like crazy and take over everything. Those rascally mint relatives. And I, too, use about 10 sage leaves a year.

Never heard of sage in tomato sauce either.

Yeah, only a few sorry looking sprigs of Thyme survived the winter. My rosemary plant was the largest Ive ever had in once season. I wrapped it, insulated it ... just to find a dried out brown brittle bush once unwrapped this spring. My poor Bay leaf didn't survive as well. If I would have known, I would have picked and dried all the leaves.

Rosemary is indeed a heartbreaker. It's not hardy to my area. I dig mine up, repot it, take it inside and give it bunches of TLC, and it rewards me by shedding its needles all over the floor. So, like thyme, I get a new rosemary every year. Haven't tried growing bay yet, but if it acts like that, I probably won't.

We experienced the same thing with rosemary and quit trying. We do, however, have a thyme plant in the garden that's been there for years and keeps producing thyme for the kitchen.
