Meanwhile, quarter the cherry tomatoes and thinly slice the chili pepper. Pluck the leaves from the sprigs of mint. Set half aside for garnish, and roughly chop the other half.

Bring water to a boil in a pot. Salt generously and cook the spaghetti until al dente. Reserve some pasta water, draining the rest, and add the cooked pasta to the pan with the fennel. Mix well, adding the reserved pasta water to the pan to make a light sauce. Garnish with the remaining mint. Enjoy!
