Cook half the sliced fennel with the onion, garlic and chilli, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes or until lightly browned and tender. Add seafood and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until almost cooked through. Add pasta sauce and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes or until seafood is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.
