Review This Recipe
I fixed this dish for dinner last night and was skeptical how it would turn out. When dinner was done my two boys ages 3 and 6 were fighting over the last peice! It was super good, easy, and had amazing flavor!
This recipe was a great inspiration to what I made. I didn't have white fish so I used salmon and we have dairy allergies so I didn't get to crust my fish. But to the veggies I sauteed them in olive oil and added teriyaki sauce to them for moisture and flavour. For the pasta I lightly browned garlic (2 large cloves, we love garlic here) in a small puddle of olive oil then dumped it on the pasta and added a tad bit more oil to it (just enough to coat). It turned out really well. I didn't do much to my salmon and it still turned out. I will definatly make again.
Great Easy Meal
My fiance and I found this meal very enjoyable and tasty. I used a boxed angel hair pasta mix (Garlic & Olive Oil) which made the meal even easier to throw together. The mushroom/onion mixture was delicious and quick and I threw a few extra spices in. I used a pinch of Kosher salt and just a little margarine when cooking the mushrooms/onions and it worked well.
The fish with the parmesan coating was very good and helped provide an enjoyable flavor. Will definetly use this receipe again.
I have to admit that I don't like fish - but I went back for seconds on this one! I also don't like mushrooms, so DH made his with and mine without mushrooms. We didn't have any thyme, so he substituted Italian seasoning which worked out just fine. I agree with the other reviewers that the noodles need some sort of sauce - we just added some butter. I loved the taste of the mix of onion and garlic flavors. And the fish didn't taste like fish, which is just the way I like my fish.
The recipe had a really good taste and was really easy to fix and serve but I feel that it needed a sauce not a heavy cream sauce but maybe a sauce made from vegtable bullion
I thought the baked parmesan fish was excellent. It had very good flavor. The noodles needed something to them because they were very bland. I made this for a Home EC project and the over all appearance was wonderful.
What's all the hype?
This dish was nothing more than baked fish on top of pasta. The pasta was dry, the fish was bland, and the mushroom were nothing special. I should have known after reading all the rave reviews that said "excellent, just have to add..." The recipe is definitely lacking something. I think it needs a mushroom sauce and some lemon to moisten things up.
My husband loved this! He was so impressed because I don't eat fish, yet cook it. I did both on this recipe! I bought cod and it was great with the pasta. I did add a little olive oil for moistness. I cut up my fish and mixed it in my pasta - which was great for hesitant fish eater. My Husband ate two filets over his pasta! Great recipe.
This dish is excellent! I used cod the first time, and we loved it. The second time I made Chilean Sea Bass and it was out of this world! This was the first time I made Sea Bass at home. What an easy great tasting recipe!
Delicious and Convenient
I thouroughly enjoyed this dish. I baked Scrod with the pasta. Cooked the vegetables thick in butter. All together an excellent dish. I never thought I could get such great taste out of fish!
We made this dish last night, and we LOVED IT! Someone suggested in another review that you add lemon juice to the vegetables. A great suggestion! Also, butter or olive oil worked to eliminate dryness for us. I highly recommend you try this. You won't be disappointed. Also, you don't have to use the Buitoni, any brand will do.
Nothing but a fishterpiece
This dish was...more then words could say. It was a delight for my sophomore class. I did a speech on this cuisine that got me an A, just because of this delightful masterpiece.
Good, but not awesome
Fish is fish, and this didn't do much to minimize the fishiness LOL! The crust is nice, but the veggie medley needs some moisture - I added some butter to saute the veggies and that made it much more palatable that what it was before (TOO DRY!). I didn't serve it on pasta, but had steamed rice on the side. My husband loved it, so I'll probably make it again. The kids didn't touch it.
Love that Fish
This recipe is delicious. I added shredded parmesan cheese along with the grated and served the fish without the pasta. Everyone loved the fish and I will add this to our make again list.
Easy and delicious!
I don't know about the veggies/sauce (I made my own sauce), but the parmesan fish is fabulous! I cooked it using tilapia and also added a dash of garlic salt to the cheese mixture. There were no leftovers! I will definitely make this again.
A really simple but extremely tasty recipe. I adapted it slightly by adding some garlic powder to the original coating and then using the remaining coating along with a squeeze of lemon juice when sauteing the veg. stir the veq into spaghetti before serving and top with a little sprinkle of parmesan. Yummy! I'll definitely be making this recipe again when we have company!
The pasta was dry so I took the others advice and made a cream sauce with the mushroom medley. I'm wondering why it said to reserve the flour and cheese. I threw it away, no sense in saving it.
Pasta problem solved!
This is an excellent, light recipe. My girlfriend really loved this dish (and every other dish I've made from this site). I read the other reviews about the pasta being dry and without flavor, so I just lightly dripped olive oil and added some pepper (not salt or it'll dry it out even more). You could also melt some light butter instead.
Great Way to Cook Fish
I loved the Parmesan-crusted fish - it is an excellent alternative to fish fry. I made the recipe using catfish. I heeded others' warnings about the sauce, and instead prepared a garlic & white wine cream sauce from a 'crab linguine' recipe available on this site.
I guess I had high expections about this recipe after reading the reviews. I think it is too plain. The pasta does not have any sauce, which makes this dish very dry.
Good & Healthy
Excellent & easy. I made it more healthy by substituting rice noodles (Vermicilli) that I bought at an Asian grocery store, and I used rice flour rather than wheat. I cooked it with white roughy. I also added lots of garlic. Serve with Parmesan cheese bottle in case people want to add more of a cheese flavor to it. It was good as leftovers too.
This is a great way to get kids to eat fish!
I put mozzarella on instead of the parmesan in the last few minutes of baking. Great recipe, thank you!
you'll like this even if ya don't like fish!
this recipe was different and yummy!! i am not a fish lover, i eat it because it's good for me and my hubby likes it. but this recipe could make a fish lover outta me! the parmesan cheese made it taste more like chicken, no bad fishy taste. and the spaghetti with the veggie topping was great. try it, you'll like it!
Perty Good Stuff
I am from Texas as you can plainly see... that has something to do with my comment believe it or not.. This was a wonderful dish.. I thought I had some catfish filets in the freezer but I didn't I only had SAND BASS (the texas part) and if you have never eaten it, it is real fishy smelling and gamey.. This was a wonderful dish, the whole family loved it, DONT USE BASS, if it is all you have, GO BUY SOME< I PROMISE YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!
Easy & Elegant
I recently served this to my in-laws, and they loved it! Not only is it healthy and delicious, but the presentation is lovely! We used fresh grouper (which is readily available to us in Florida).
Thought it was pretty dry though I'm a really bad cook. It probably was user error.
