Add the chopped wild fennel to the bread and mix well. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water, drain well when al dente. Add it to the mushrooms in the frying pan and toss over high heat for a few seconds. Remove from the heat and put in a dish sprinkling the fried bread and wild fennel on top.
