When I put this together, my husband thought it looked almost too pretty to eat. . .but we ate and enjoyed. . .

For 2:

–Pacific cod fillet (size of 2 decks of cards, one-half pound)

–English peas (green peas; 1 cup; frozen)

–tomato circles (1 Roma tomato, sliced)

–red onion (2 slices, broken apart into rings)

–white wine (one-quarter cup)

–basil leaves (1 tablespoon, divided)

–minced garlic (1 tablespoon)

–green onion ( 1 stalk, chopped)

–salt and pepper to taste

1 – Place the green peas, tomato, and onion in a large, covered baking dish. Add salt, pepper, basil, and minced garlic. Fold gently. Place 3 tablespoon of marinara sauce (pasta sauce) in the quarter cup of white wine, and stir. Then pour the sauce into the vegetables. Microwave on high for 7 minutes.

2 – Place the cod on top of the vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, basil, and extra virgin olive oil. Top with green onion.
