Sautéed Veggies and Shells

So today was a wash.  I wanted to go to D.C. and see the cherry blossoms.  However, we walked out the door to a rain storm.  No Cherry Blossoms for me today.  This made me a little sad.  I wanted to have a fun Easter since we are far from home and our wonderful friends, who celebrate in style every year.
Maybe later in the week I’ll be able to make it to see the cherry blossoms.
To cheer me up Alex helped me make a dish with fennel.  I’d spotted some beautiful bulbs at our new grocery store, Roots, yesterday.  Here is what we made.
