400 grams dried ricciutelli (or other short, wide dried pasta)
125 ml (1/2 cup) extra virgin olive oil
90 grams coarse sourdough breadcrumbs
1 baby fennel bulb, thinly sliced, fronds reserved

1 long red chilli, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
200 grams mixed small tomatoes

Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (7-8minutes), drain and return pasta and 40ml pasta water to pan.


Meanwhile, heat 50ml oil in a frying pan, add breadcrumbs, stir occasionally until golden (3-4 minutes), season to taste and set aside.

Add to pasta with kingfish, rocket and reserved fronts, toss to combine, scatter with breadcrumbs and serve with a glass of Pfeiffer Marsanne.
