Heat the olive oil over medium high heat in a large sauté pan. Sauté the fennel, bell peppers and garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add the tomato and the sausage and continue to sauté 2-3 minutes more. Add the mussels and the stock, and cook 4-5 minutes, or until the mussels begin to open. (Discard any mussels that fail to open) Mix in the butter and cook 1-2 minutes longer to reduce the broth.
