Fennel and Potato Casserole

Fennel and Potato Casserole or sformato di finocchio e patate in Italian is surely a comfort dish. It can be prepared ahead of time and then heated and served on demand!

This fennel and potato casserole can be made vegetarian by omitting the ham. Think potatoes and fennel baked in a creamy b├ęchamel sauce.
