Take a medium sized bowl and melt butter in it. Whisk butter until it separates from the solid and turns golden brown while spreading the nutty aroma. Add sage leaves and remove butter from heat; also add some lemon juice and keep it aside. 

Preparing the main components 

Take a large pot and fill it with salted butter; now bring water to a boil. Add ravioli into boiling water and cook for around 7-8 minutes. While ravioli is cooking; take a sauté pan and pour around a tablespoon of oil. Now add butter in it and melt it. Add the shallot and cook until they become tender and translucent. Now, it is time you add wine and cook until the mixture becomes syrupy (3minutes). Add lobster meat and cook until for about 3-4 minutes. Transfer ravioli from boiling pot to sauté pan. Add around walnut butter, say 2-3tbsp and toss together. Add pasta water if you feel. Top the food with walnuts picked from the butter sauce, parmesan cheese and basil. Serve with French breads.
