Top Review by Parsley

I've always loved fennel. It's one of those veggies that has a unique flavor that you don't want to disguise. The light lemony flavor and parmesan cheese are a perfect match for the fennel. I added just a pinch of salt and I garnished with some of the fennel "feathers." ;) Thanx for posting this terrific, yet simple side dish!
