Roasted Parmesan Fennel


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 fennel bulbs, cut horizontally into 1/3-inch thick slices, fronds reserved
  • 1/3 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Coarse salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: Lightly oil the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass baking dish.  Arrange the fennel in the dish.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then with the Parmesan.  Drizzle with the oil.

Step 3:  Bake until the fennel is fork-tender and the top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.  Chop enough fennel fronds to equal 2 teaspoons, then sprinkle over the roasted fennel and serve.
