Bonus tip: Fennel seeds are the easy secret that gives store-bought sauce extra oomph in this dish. Before adding the seeds, we like to crush them to bring out their subtle flavor. Trouble is, pounding the hard exterior tends to send them scattering all over. Our simple fix: Place seeds in a plastic freezer bag, then lightly pound with a rolling pin, the bottom of a pot or a heavy can until finely crushed.
