This was quick and easy and my husband and son loved it. I used Trader Joe's Arrabbiata sauce and added red potatoes that I quartered and boiled in salted water until tender. I served it with a green salad and crusty bread. I will definitely make this again.

Maybe it was my arrabiatta sauce, yes it was spicy-hot, but other than that, I found this to be on the bland side. It seemed to be missing something.

Yum! Great soup, easy and quick to prepare. The fennel gave it a natural and healthy spicy kick.

I subsituted tilapia with monkfish (great firm fish, perfect for a stew) since my fishmonger hadn't any and it was very tasty. I will do it again. I served with with boiled potatoes and had a nice piece of bread to soak the juices.

Used wild caught shrimp instead of tilapia and chicken broth instead of clam juice. AMAZING!

Quick and easy to make. Extremely delicious.

This is a very spicy dish. All one tastes is the heat; there are no nuances of flavor. Why spend $2 on fennel when the flavor is entirely lost? Try cabbage instead. $9 for the arrabbiata sauce, $3 for the clam juice, $2 for the fennel, $7 for the tilapia...a lot of money for a disappointing dish. I found this recipe in the "until June, 26,1 2014" issue of Cooking Light All-Time Top-Rated Recipes magazine... And I paid $12 for that! How did this recipe receive "best" status? By the way, I do enjoy spicy foods.
