What weed is this and how to eradicate?

Dear Master Gardener Attached is a photo of some type of weed is that is choking out my other plants - the stem is triangular. The roots interconnect and send out shooters. I am pulling it but can't seem to get all the roots.

Hennepin County Minnesota

The plant in the photos (Aegopodium podagraria) is variously known as goutweed, bishop's weed or snow on the mountain. Go to the following websites to learn more, including ways to control it.
