Recipe Wednesday – Baked Parmesan Fish with Pasta

When I was reading my friend Catherine’s blog a few weeks ago I saw this recipe and thought I’d give it a try.  Jason and I are always up for a fish recipe.  I took Catherine’s advice and added a small jar of Bruschetta sauce to the recipe and it was fantastic.  Jason picked most of the mushrooms out (of course) but Charlotte and I loved them.  And it was really easy! Great meal for when you only have a little bit of prep time.  I also used salmon like Catherine did and I was worried about getting the skin off once I had cooked the fish, but the skin sticks to the roating pan (which is the kind of pan that I used) and so it wasn’t a problem at all!  Catherine got this recipe from the Nestle Cookbook.

Baked Parmesan Fish with Pasta

1/3 cup grated fat free Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon all purpose flour
3 thyme springs, leaves removed and crushed (I used regular thyme in the bottle)
4 white fish fillets (6 oz each) (I used Salmon and it was great)
1 package (9 oz) Buitoni Refrigerated Angel Hair Pasta
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup halved mushroom caps (I used sliced mushrooms)
1/2 cup finely sliced green onions
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small jar of Bruschetta sauce (I added this to the recipe)

Preheat oven to 350
Place cheese, flour, and thyme in paper bag (I used ziploc). Individually coat fish by gently shaking in bag; discard coating ingredients. Place fish in baking pan with rack.
Bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
Prepare pasta according to package directions.
Heat large, nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion, mushrooms, green onions, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions are tender. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
Place past on oven-warmed plates. Attractively arrange fish over pasta. Serve with mushroom medly over fish and pasta. Garnish with thyme, if desired.

TIP: you can use most firm, white fish fillets, including swordfish, sole, halibut, or red snapper.
