I see fennel all the time at my local farmer’s markets so I end up using them quite a bit. They’re delicious so I don’t mind a bit. I was shocked when my parents told me during their last visit that they’d never had it. I made them a version of this recipe while they were here and they loved it! It you’re a fennel newbie this is the recipe for you.

Let’s Eat | Fennel and Sausage Fettucini

Serving Size: 4

2 fennel bulbs, halved and then sliced

1 small white onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons clarified butter

salt

pepper

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried sage

Sweet Italian Sausage, casings removed and crumbled

1 pound fettuccine

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup white wine

Parsley, chopped (optional)

Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Cook the fettuccine according to the directions.

While the pasta is cooking, add butter to a sauté pan over medium heat.

Once the butter has melted add the fennel, onion and garlic. Saute the onion mixture until they are soft.

Add the salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and sage. Stir to combine and coat the onion mixture.

Next, add the sausage and cook about 5 minutes or until browned.

Add the chicken broth and wine then cook for another 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and the sausage is cooked through.

Add the cooked fettuccine to a large bowl.

Remove the sauce from the heat and pour over the fettuccine. Toss to combine.

Serve with parsley and Parmesan cheese.

Holiday Dressing on a Budget

I wish I could get something shiny and new for every holiday event but it’s just not realistic. I normally buy a few new standout items like a metallic skirt, sparkly piece of jewelry or a sequined clutch. Even a new festive and bold lipstick can transform an outfit. You can mix in the new items with the old and create many new outfits. You will look fantastic and feel even better knowing that you won’t be broke when the new year rolls around. Here are a few great items that can transform your old wardrobe and make it feel fresh and new.
