Fettucine with Spicy Almond Butter Sauce

This is inspired by a recipe in Food and Wine magazine. Usually, when I think of almond butter pasta, it is an Asian-style pasta, but this is a garlic-y, Italian-style, which is a nice change.

1 package brown rice fettucine or homemade fettucine
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tbsp dried sage leaves, crumbled
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup almond butter
grated zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese

Cook pasta, following package instructions. Mix remaining ingredients together, reserving 2 Tbsp of cheese. When you drain the pasta, leave a little water in the pan. Return pasta to the pan with the sauce, and toss to combine. Serve, topping with reserved cheese.
