Ingredients:  
1 pound celery (8 to 10 large stalks), peeled and thinly sliced crosswise (about 4 cups)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, mix celery, 1/2 cup Parmesan, cream, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper. Pour mixture into buttered 8x8 baking dish. Place baking dish on baking sheet, and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until celery is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, tear bread into large pieces, and pulse in food processor until coarse crumbs form . Add remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan, and drizzle with olive oil; pulse just until crumbs are coated with oil, 4 to 6 times (or just pour bread crumbs into bowl and mix with Parmesan and oil)).
3. Remove aluminum foil from baking dish. Dividing evenly, sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over celery. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, until golden, 8 to 10 minutes more. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
