Help - Too much sage in ragu!

potterstreet Oct 10, 2007 03:24 PM


i used a recipe from epicurious for a veal, sausage, tomato and porcini ragu which called for fresh sage. now it tastes overwhelmingly of sage and i don't know what to do. i added some nutmeg which helped. someone else suggested sugar.

any and all ideas and suggestions will be appreciated by me and my guests tomorrow night!

    It's SO easy to overdo sage (and thyme!)--if it's an option, just add more of the tomato/meats/mushrooms--I don't think you can "cover" the sage with another flavor.
    Maybe you'll end up with way too much, but you could freeze it?
