I loved this dish, it was really simple to make but tasted delicious. I was also a bit apprehensive about the fennel and basil patties with the parmesan dressing but it went well.

Yum yum!!! Made this tonight but changed the recipe a bit: We had pork mince in the freezer so used that instead. Wasn't disappointed as it was absolutely gorgeous. Got some leftovers to take to work tomorrow too. The fennel in the patties is delicious and goes really well with the parmesan dressing which I was a bit apprehensive about. Will definitely make this again.
