Fennel and onions are roasted until completely caramelized bringing out their natural sweetness. Salty prosciutto and tangy parmesan together balance out the sweetness from the veggies.

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 15 minutes  |  Cook Time: 40 minutes  |  Serves: 6


  • 3 medium fennel bulbs, trimmed and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 2 medium red onions, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 ounces prosciutto, torn into small pieces
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • snipped fennel fronds for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. On a rimmed baking sheet toss the fennel, onions and thyme with the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast until tender and lightly browned on all sides; about 35-40 minutes. Toss the veggies halfway through baking.
  2. Remove the veggies from the oven and add the prosciutto. Return the veggies back to the oven and cook for about 5 minutes longer or until the prosciutto become slightly crispy.
  3. While the veggies are still warm grate some parmesan cheese evenly and sprinkle with fennel fronds. Serve warm or at room temperature.
