Roasted Fennel With Pecorino Romano

Steve’s grilled a couple of steaks on the grill and he asked if I would make a side dish to go along with the steaks. We love fennel so I thought I’d roast some fennel and red onions with a sprinkling of Pecorino Ramano cheese.

This is my Roasted Fennel With Pecorino Romano.
