In a sauté pan on medium heat melt butter, add garlic, onions, and sage. Cook about 2-3 minutes until aromatic. Add ale. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid has reduced halfway. While this is cooking, start on the pasta, cook until al dente. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes constantly stirring. Add more salt if needed or extra cheese.
*If you want to make this vegan, omit the butter and cheese. Instead, add 4 tbsp of coconut milk ( canned) and 3 Tbsps Nutritional Yeast.
