Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 fennel bulbs (about 2lbs)--bulbs quartered, cored and sliced lengthwise 1/2-inch thick, fronds chopped and reserved
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup freshly shredded parmesan, plus more for garnishing

Preparation

HIT THE HEAT

In a large skillet fitted with a lid, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the sliced fennel and 1/4 tsp salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the fennel begins to brown, about 5 minutes.

ADD LIQUID

Lower the heat to low and pour in the cream. Stir to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

COVER AND SIMMER

Cover the pot and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the fennel is tender when pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.

FINISH THE DISH

Stir in the cheese and half of the reserved fronds; season with salt and pepper. To serve, garnish with the remaining reserved fronds and a sprinkling of cheese.
