Giada's family dinners - roasted fennel with parmesan

This week I'm featuring food from Giada's Family Dinners

This is a really good vegetable dish. The roasting process mellows the anise flavor of the fennel, and the parmesan cheese forms a crispy crust. I used less olive oil than the recipe called for, about 2 teaspoons.

Roasted fennel with parmesan

Make sure you cut your fennel slices on the thin side. If it's any thicker than what's called for in the recipe, it won't be fully cooked in the time the recipe specifies.

Hi Sara! I just discovered your site and I love the recipes to be found here! You totally have a new reader! And thank you for the recipe to cook fennel. I didn't know what to do with this strange vegetable. I thought that it suits only for farmacy because of very strong anis flavor.I'll try.
