Our weekend and pasta!

This weekend we did a service project with our small group, helping to fill boxes of necessities and goodies to be given out to people who need it.

Will tried to help out!
My friend Courtney with Noah on her back!
We chased Will around the entire time...he loved being around so many people!
Also, I wanted to share this pasta dish Matt made this weekend. He's made it several times and I always request this when he offers to is my favorite pasta dish EVER!

Pasta with Sausage, Edamame, and Fennel

1 lb. fettucine (we use Tinkyada gluten-free pasta)
1 T butter
2 shallots (or 1 small onion) finely chopped
1 bunch fennel (use bottom only, not stalks), cut into strips in the direction of the stalks
2 t sage
3/4 to 1 lb fresh italian sausage, casings removed and broken into small pieces
1 c frozen shelled edamame
3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
fresh parsley for garnishing

Make pasta as directed, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Cook shallots in butter over medium to low heat until translucent but not browned, 3-5 minutes. Add fennel and sage and saute until tender, 5-10 minutes. Add sausage and stir. Add 1/2 cup water and cover and let simmer. When sausage is cooked, add edamame. Take off heat and stir in parmesan. Mix with pasta and thin with reserved cooking water if needed. Garnish with parsley and serve!
