A Simple Dinner:  HERBED COD WITH PARMESAN IN WHITE WINE & ITALIAN SAUCE / COUSCOUS

–cod (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)

–basil, oregano, garlic powder, minced onion, cayenne pepper (optional), salt, pepper (bottled)

–Parmesan cheese

–white wine (cooking wine is fine)

1 – Place cod in a covered baking dish.  Season with basil, oregano, garlic powder, minced onion, cayenne pepper (optional), salt and pepper.  Spoon Italian sauce atop the cod and all around the dish.  Add a splash of white wine and a few drops of olive oil.  Microwave on high for 8 minutes.

2 – Place two-thirds cup of couscous in a covered baking dish.  Add 1 cup of water.  Season with salt and olive oil.  Microwave on high for 2 and one-half minutes.

3 – Serve the cod with sauce, hot, atop the couscous.  I also served field peas with snaps and a salad (for recipes, use the search box on this blog).
