I have been researching Anti Inflammatory food recently and found that fennel is not only a powerl anti inflammatory properties, it also has high anti oxidant properties too. Fennel is not something that I would normally throw in my shopping basket as I really only know 1 recipe for it. ( A fennel and orange salad).
I did a quick search online and found many recipes using fennel in pasta which is supposed to be a Sicilian recipe. I bought a couple of bulbs from the supermarket to test these recipes out. As I had also can of sardines and some spaghetti in the larder, I made this simple dish.
