Ingredients:

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped rosemary
1 tablespoon whole fennel seeds
1 teaspoon ground fennel
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a mini processor, combine the garlic, rosemary, fennel seeds, ground fennel, crushed red pepper, black pepper and olive oil and process to a paste. Set the pork roast on a large rimmed baking sheet and cut shallow score marks all over the fat. Spread 1 tablespoon of the garlic paste on the underside of the roast; spread the remaining paste all over the scored fat and meaty parts of the roast. Season all over with salt.

2. Roast the pork, fat side up, for 1 hour. Reduce the oven temperature to 325° and roast the pork for about 35 minutes longer, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 150°. Transfer the roast to a carving board and let rest for 15 minutes. Carve the roast into chops and serve at once.

Personal Notes:
This is straight out of Siena, Italy. I included this recipe for Grace and Catherine who got lost and found in the great walled city. I would say just found because I was on the Piazza del Campo consuming a bottle of red.
