This is a super easy, super fast weeknight dinner. It can be adapted for your preference of fish - just take into consideration the thickness of the cut (cod vs. tilapia). Penne, linguine - any pasta works here. You'll start this on the stove top and finish in the oven. Dinner is on the table in 30 minutes!
