Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Meanwhile, in a medium frying pan, melt the butter over a medium heat. When the butter is foaming, add the sage leaves and fry for 1 minute.
Add the walnuts and lemon zest to the frying pan and fry for another 3 minutes until the sage is crisp and the butter has turned brown and nutty. At the same time, add the pasta to the pan of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.
Scoop the pasta out of the pan with a large slotted spoon and divide between 2 plates. Spoon over the sage and walnut butter and scatter with rocket leaves. Sprinkle over plenty of freshly ground black pepper before serving. Some shavings of hard cheese go nicely on top, if liked.
To ensure that the sauce and pasta are ready at the same time, have a pan of boiling water ready for the fiorelli before you start making the sauce.
