  • 4 Treasures from the Sea Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia filets
  • 1 can of Hunt's Tomato Sauce (15 oz.)
  • Daily Chef Spaghetti (about half of a 16 oz. package)
  • Fresh Spinach (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herb Seasoning (oregano, marjoram, savory thyme, basil, rosemary, and sage)
  • 1 can of Hunt's Diced Tomatoes (14.5 oz.) optional
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese for garnish, optional
  • Fresh Green Beans, optional
  • Olive oil (a few drops for spaghetti, a few teaspoons for green beans)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. While oven is preheating, setup a pot on the stove for spaghetti, a saute pan for the green beans and spinach, and a saucepan for the tomato sauce.
  3. Drain the diced tomatoes well and set aside
  4. Spray a baking dish large enough for four tilapia filets with olive oil (or other non-stick cooking spray
  5. When oven is at 425 degrees, start baking the tilapia for 15 minutes before rotating
  6. Add water and a few drops of olive oil to the spaghetti pot and start boiling the water
  7. After the tilapia have baked for 15 minutes, flip them over and bake another 10 minutes
  8. Add the spaghetti noodles to the boiling water, they should cook in about 10 minutes so they'll be done when the tilapia is done
  9. Start sauteing the green beans in olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes
  10. Heat the tomato sauce over medium heat and add Italian Herb Seasoning to it
  11. When you're happy with the green beans (taste one after it cools off) then you can cook the spinach in the same saute pan (it cooks very quickly, keep moving it around until completely wilted)
  12. When the tilapia is done cooking your spaghetti should be done too! Remove the tilapia from the oven, and drain the spaghetti in the sink.
  13. Mix the well-drained diced tomatoes with the cooked spaghetti noodles
  14. Assemble your dinner by layering spinach, spaghetti noodles with diced tomatoes, and tilapia. Spoon over some tomato sauce. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese if desired. Serve with a side of green beans (because they go so well with any dish that uses tomato sauce). Enjoy!
