I think you coat anything with cheese, oil salt and pepper and it will be good. Fennel is no exception. Might be my new favorite way to eat fennel... item not reviewed by moderator and published
My hubs and I had never tasted fennel (anise) before this. This was so simple and delicious. We will be having this again. I paired it with Giada's roasted pork loin with port and fig sauce. SCRUMPTIOUS! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bellissimo! So simple, yet so tasty. I had some eggplant, so I prepared it the same way as the fennel and it was terrific, too. Buon' appetito! item not reviewed by moderator and published

No muss. No fuss. Just delicious buttery fennel pieces. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always boil the cut up fennel in lemon water first (only about 5 min.) before roasting to soften the tough bulbs (cooks faster too), then add slivered almonds to them along with the parmesan, before roasting. Then I add 2 oz. Pernod (anise liquer) with about 10 minutes left, in order to perk up any lost licorice taste (anise is one of the best things you can ingest anyway!). With about 5 minutes remaining I then turn the oven on broil to get a delicious browned crunchy top (it also toasts the almonds a bit, which intensifies their taste too). bon appetit item not reviewed by moderator and published
Simple and pretty good. The fresh Parmesan is a must! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is soooo good! Smells amazing coming out of the oven! I made this the first time for Christmas dinner and added cauliflower to make the dish work for all the people who were eating. Everyone loved it and it's a new favorite for our family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. I have to admit I added a little cream to it though. I'm sure it doesn't need it, but it was gooood! I made it as a side dish for braciole. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First time reviewer here! Just HAD to review this one!! Always looking for variety for my family and I was SO glad when I came across this! Never had fennel before but after making this, I'm a huge fan! My 10 year old son asked if I could make it every night! Tasted like buttered candy! Honestly! item not reviewed by moderator and published
