Place large pot of water over high heat, then in a sauté pan, put sausage (free of casing) over medium-high. Use spoon or spatula to separate into small pieces and cook until lightly crispy. Then lower to medium and stir in kale until slightly wilted.

Meanwhile, melt butter in separate pan until golden brown, then add in sage and remove from heat. Combine with butter and pecans.
Next, cook ravioli as package instructs and toss ravioli with sauté. Plate and garnish with parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds.

Serves 2-3.
