If you love Fish as much as I do you have to try this recipe! This makes one of the best Fish Sandwiches you’ll ever have. I layed out one of those great tasting Cod Fillets to thaw out. I rinsed the fillet off and rolled it in Flour then dipping it into Egg Beater’s, shaking off the excess. Then rolling the fillet in a Panko Bread Crumbs, Onion Powder, Lemon Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Paprika mix until covered on both sides of the fillets. I then lightly fried it about 4 minutes per side in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Golden brown and delicious! Served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. You can add Cheese or Tarter Sauce but Why, this is just too good natural. There’s even going to be some tasty leftovers for lunch tomorrow! The recipe is at the end of the post.
For sides I sliced up Fingerling Potatoes into Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Baked them at 400 degrees until they were done and golden brown, about minutes. I also tried a new side Betty Crocker Suddenly Pasta Salad – Basil Pesto. It was real easy to prepare. Quick and easy and quite good the only thing I didn’t like it was a tad high in salt. I left the instructions and nutrition info at the bottom of the post. For dessert later I tried a new dessert I found in the latest issue of Kraft Family Foods, Mango-Cheesecake Parfait. I’ll leave the recipe on a separate post. Mango, Philly Cheese, Vanilla Pudding, and Cool Whip what’s not to like!

Suddenly Pasta Salad – Basil Pesto
To make the basil pesto salad, you simply need water to boil the pasta and one-third cup water mixed with two tablespoons of olive oil to make the seasoning that coats the pasta. The instructions direct the cook to boil the pasta in a 3-quart or larger saucepan that is filled about two-thirds of the way with water. Gently boil the penne pasta, uncovered for about thirteen minutes.
While the pasta is cooking, add two tablespoons of olive oil to one-third cup of water and stir in the packet of seasoning mix. The instructions warn to use cold water but I have used room temperature and have never seen a difference in taste or texture. Set this mixture aside. When the pasta is cooked, drain the water and pour into a bowl or container. Stir in the seasoning mixture and toss to coat the pasta thoroughly. The box instructions state that chopped tomato can be added in for additional flavor.I alsio added sliced Black Olives. It also suggests for moister salad to add in a couple more teaspoons of olive oil
