READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by ChipotleChick

Another yummy lowfat recipe from "In The Kitchen With Rosie," the cookbook by Oprah's personal chef. I have never used the fennel leaves, so if you try it, tell me how it tastes!

I was looking for a different way to serve asparagus, and this hit the spot. It has a subtle flavor that gives the vegetables interest without being too fussy. It is easy to make, can be made in advance, and doesn't require unusual ingredients. I toasted the sesame seeds in a toaster oven and watched them very closely.
