PESTO-PACKING MAMA'S FISH

Here's an easy meal for you to prepare. As a pescatarian, a fish-eating vegetarian who's always on a diet, I try to come up with recipes that are easy and aren't too many calories. I love cod. It's a white fish that has a mild taste so you really have to season it to taste good. Here's what I did.

1 pound white fish
6 ounces of prepared pesto
2 medium sized tomatoes sliced thinly
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella
salt and pepper - to taste
Granulated garlic and onion

Cut the cod in 4 equal serving pieces and place in a baking dish that's been coated with oil. Season each piece generously with the salt and pepper, granulated garlic and onion.




 Spread the pesto over each piece covering all four corners. Add the sliced tomatoes. I cut each piece in half and layered it over the fish.




Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and top it off with the mozzarella.



Bake in a preheated oven of 375 degrees until it flakes with a fork, 20-30 minutes.


I served this over garlic and olive oil spinach.
