Broiled Fennel with Parmesan Cheese
The nutty saltiness of Parmesan cheese is an excellent match for the sweet, delicate licorice flavor of fennel in this quick and easy side dish recipe.
Tip: Fresh fennel is sometimes confused with similarly flavored anise and can even be labeled that way in stores. They're actually different plants. (The only part of the anise plant that's usually sold are its seeds.)
