5 Top Ways to Use Fennel Stalks and Fronds http://www.thekitchn.com/top-5-ways-to-use-fennel-stalks-and-fronds-ingredient-spotlight-183057
Sauteed Finocchio With Butter and Cheese – The Classis Italian Cookbook by Marcella Hazan
3 large Fennel or 4-5 small
5 Tbls Butter
3 Tbls Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
Cut off and discard the tops of the fennel, cut the bulbous lower parts into vertical slices no more than ½” thick. Wash thoroughly in cold water. Put the sliced fennel and butter in a fairly broad saucepan, and add enough water barely to cover. Cook, uncovered, over medium-heat. If there is too much fennel for your pan, put in as much as it will hold, cover the pan, and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until the fennel has wilted and come down in volume. Add the rest of the fennel, mix well, cover the pan, and cook for 3-4 more minutes. Uncover the pan and cook, turning the fennel from time to time, until it is tender at the pricking of a fork, from 25-40 minutes all together. You may add as much as 1/3 cup of warm water if necessary, but at the end the fennel must have absorbed all the liquid and should have a glossy pale-gold color. Before removing from the heat, add salt to taste and the grated cheese. Mix well and transfer to a warm platter. Serve while hot.

Peel and wash carrots, and grate them on the largest holes of a grater. When ready to serve, add salt, olive oil, and lemon juice. (Parsley would go well in this dish). Toss thoroughly and serve immediately.
