Method: Sauté the garlic in olive oil and butter until soft on a low heat. Add small pieces of pork & fennel sausage in batches, stirring constantly until brown.  Next add the cherry tomatoes and fennel seeds. Cook gently for 10 minutes.  Then add the  zucchini and fresh basil cooking for a further 4 minutes. To cook the pasta, bring a large pot of water to the boil, adding 1-2 teaspoons of salt. Cook the pasta in small batches for 3 minutes and put in an ice water bath for a minute to prevent the sheets from sticking together. Drain and gradually add to the sauce and cook until heated through.   Serve with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and a few extra basil leaves. Enjoy!
