Remove sausages from casings. In saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook sausages, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove to bowl.
Drain off all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) fat from pan. Add onion, garlic, green pepper, fennel seeds, oregano, salt and pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste; cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add wine and tomatoes, scraping up brown bits on bottom and breaking up tomatoes with back of spoon; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until tender but firm, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain; return to pot. Add sauce; toss to coat. Serve sprinkled with cheese.
