DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the fennel, strip away the outer layer of leaves if they're tough, slice the bulbs into thin wedges, and boil them for 10 minutes in salted water.
  • Drain them well and sauté them in the butter, adding the milk a few tablespoons at a time, and once you have added it all simmer for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prepare the béchamel sauce and preheat oven to 400F.
  • Butter an oven-proof dish, and when the fennel is done simmering transfer it to the dish.
  • Dust the fennel with the grated cheese, pour the béchamel sauce over it, and bake the fennel for 20 minutes, or until it is lightly browned.
  • Serve.
