This is from a Mark Bittman book (former NY Times food guy):

Pasta with Fennel

¼ c. currants
¼ c. pine nuts
salt and pepper
1 fennel bulb ~1.5 lbs.
¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon fennel seeds (optional)
1 pound of pasta (like penne or farfalle)

Soak currants in warm water to cover. Toast pine nuts. Bring large pot of water to boil. Separate fennel stalks and leaves from the bulb; chop the bulb. Trim the feathery leaves, mince, and set aside. Chop the stalks and put them in the boiling water.

Meanwhile, put the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; a minute later add the onion, chopped fennel bulb, fennel seeds. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion and fennel are softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add some salt and pepper. Drain the currants and add them along with all but 1 Tablespoon of pine nuts. Scoop the chopped fennel stalks from the boiling water and add them along with ½ cup of the fennel water. Simmer mixture while you cook the pasta.

When the pasta is al dente, drain it reserving a little cooking water. Put the pasta in a bowl and add the sauce along with reserved water (if necessary). Adjust salt and pepper, garnish with fennel fronds and remaining pine nuts.
