Absolutely wonderful!!! How could it be bad roasted in cream, garlic, and parmesan??? If you haven't ever tried fennel, this is your great intro recipe! I had some pretty large fennel bulbs so next time, if they are that large, I will roast a little longer. The centers of the fennel were very tender and the best part! I loved this recipe, thanks!!!

Fennel is a great veggie. This gratin is very simple and allows the great flavor of the fennel to come through without being overdone by sauces or seasonings. This would be great with any roast meats.... even for the holidays. Thanx for a great way to fix fennel! I'll make this again.
