"Brown Butter"...I Can't Get Enough!

I love the taste of brown butter!
It's like a magnet--whenever I see it mentioned on a menu I MUST order it.
Does anyone have any recipes/ideas to feed my addiction!?
As a fellow fan of brown butter, I like the combo of pasta w/ brown butter and sage. A classic rendition is pumpkin ravioli w/ brown butter and sage. I believe that Mario B. has some version of this in his "Babbo" cookbook, which I sadly do not own.
Found a recipe from marthastewart.com that looks good. Also is a good way to recycle leftover mashed potatoes!
I have managed to get many a non-vegetable-eating date to actually go for seconds on most any green veggie that has been simply cooked (steamed/boiled) and then dressed with well-seasoned brown butter. Steamed wedges of cabbage and brussel sprouts are particularly good drizzled with it, as are green beans, asparagus, broccoli, etc.
