Fennel with Parmesan Cheese

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
3 Tbs butter
Salt and pepper

Wash and trim fennel bulbs and blanch or steam until tender but firm, 8-15 minutes.
Cool to touch and quarter, leaving a thin layer of the core to hold the fennel together, and arrange, cut side up, in a buttered 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Cover with grated cheese and dabs of butter; season with salt and pepper. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is browned.
