Fennel “alla parmigiana”
A side dish that brings out the natural flavor of the fennel and Parmesan cheese.
INGREDIENTS for 4 people
- 1 lb fennel
- 2 tbsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
- ¼ cup butter
- salt to taste
Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Meanwhile, wash and trim the fennel, by removing the tough outer leaves.
When the water begins to boil, add salt and the fennel.
Cook for about ten minutes.
Then, remove and let cool. Once cool, cut into thick slices.
Meanwhile, heat the oven and grease a baking dish with butter. Melt the remaining butter in a frying pan.
Then, alternate layers of fennel sprinkled with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and a little butter in the baking dish until you have used all the ingredients.
Bake the dish at 375° F and broil the fennel for 20 minutes.
The dish is ready when the surface is golden brown.
