Potatoes, Onions and Fennel

I found this recipe in a pizza cookbook from my library. It was a filling for a calzone. I loved the combination. We often omit the fennel and add bacon for added depth. In fact we had this last night for dinner. I love the potatoes with carmalized fried onions. And it's a really inexpensive dish that's rather filling.
Top a pizza crust or stuff a calzone, use for a pie. The options are endless. We ate this as our main dish with slices of cheese and sprouts.
We microwaved the potatoes until they were mostly soft before slicing for frying.

Potatoes, fennel and onions
3 small boiling potatoes, very thinly sliced
2 med onions, halved and very thinly sliced
2 tbs. olive oil
1 teas fennel seeds
1 teas coarse salt
1/4 teas freshly ground pepper
Heat oil in skillet. Fry onions in olive oil. Add potatoes (can pre-cook to make frying easier). Add seasonings. Fry until potatoes are soft.
If using in a baked dish, mix all the ingredients together add to whatever medium and bake.
