This is delicious!!! The parmesan cheese sort of melds into the fennel and creates the most wonderful flavor!!! At this temperature, I did roast the fennel for an hour and fifteen minutes. I think mine took longer because I had large fennel bulbs so there was a lot in the dish (it's better when they can all lay flat instead of being on top of the others). I will definitely make this one again, thanks for posting!!!
