Fennel-tomato pasta

Hey my dears!! This recipe came together as I had bought fresh fennel some days ago without being sure what I would do with it. First I thought of making just a simple salad, but then today I decided to make some pasta. It’s real simple and quick to make and perfect when there’s not much time to cook. Have a good day!!!


- 1 packet penne pasta or per choice
- 2 bulbs fennel, halved and sliced
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 1 Tsp. cumin seeds
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tsp. coriander powder
- ½ cup half & half
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan
- 2 Tbsp. chopped Italian parsley
- Salt to taste
- Red chilli powder to taste


Boil pasta according to packet directions and drain.
In the meantime heat olive oil in a large pan. Add cumin seeds and onion. Fry for some minutes, then add fennel. Sauté until fennel is soft and then add tomatoes, salt, coriander and red chilli powder. Mix well and let simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Turn heat to low and add half & half. Simmer for 2 more minutes, then add parsley and serve.
