Next add the basil and Fire Roasted tomatoes. Spoon the mixture of ingredients onto the fish.
Cook in the oven for 15 minutes or until fish is flaky.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.
The Results:
This is one of my concoctions on a night I couldn't think of anything to make. It was delicious. I love zucchini and mushrooms so they got thrown in the pot. My boys gobbled it up and my oldest son told me this is good chicken mom. He didn't care if it was fish or chicken as long as he could dip it in ranch. Whatever, he ate all his dinner. I served this with a side salad and some rice. Enjoy!
