Ingredients

For the Tomato Basil Sauce:

· 4 tablespoons olive oil

· 3 large cloves garlic, finely minced

· 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

· 2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

· 2 cup vegetable stock

· 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped

· 2 tablespoons lemon juice

· 1/2 teaspoon salt (add more to taste if needed)

· 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (add more to taste if needed)

For the Pasta:

· 4 cups cooked pasta of your choice

· 3 tablespoons pesto

· 2 tablespoon ricotta cheese

· Tomato Basil Sauce from the pan-seared cod

For the Cod:

· 2 tablespoons olive oil

· 1 package Blue Circle Atlantic Wild-Caught Frozen Cod Fillets

· Salt and pepper to add flavor

Instructions

For the Tomato Basil Sauce:

1. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan.

2. Add crushed red pepper flakes and garlic. Sauté for about 1 minute.

3. Add cherry tomatoes and cook for about 5-6 minutes, until soft.

4. Add in vegetable stock, stir, and allow the mixture to come to a gentle simmer.

5. Add the basil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes.

6. Transfer the sauce into a bowl and set aside until needed.

For the Pasta:

1. Cook your desired pasta as instructed.

2. Once the pasta is cooked, save 2 tablespoons of pasta water. Drain the pasta and place into an empty pot.

3. Stir in the reserved pasta water, Tomato Basil Sauce, pesto, ricotta cheese into the pot with the pasta. Stir and toss the pasta until everything is well combined, and then transfer to plates.

For the Cod:

1. Preheat oven to 380 degrees (F).

2. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan.

3. Season both sides of Cod with salt and pepper.

4. Place Cod in the sauté pan and cook for about 5 minutes until each side is lightly brown. (Remember that Cod is very delicate, so be gentle when flipping the cod over!)

5. Once the Cod is done, place both the Tomato Basil Sauce and Cod into an oven pan. (Make sure to leave some Tomato Basil Sauce to sauté the pasta)

6. Bake for about 5-8 minutes or until Cod is cooked through.

7. Place baked Cod onto the bed of pasta plates and then serve!
