Chef-Boy-I-Be-Illinois' Baked Cod Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chef-Boy-I-Be Illin

Fall weather puts me in the mood for comfort food such as casseroles, but I don't want all the calories that usually come with them. So I paired cod with potatoes and used an Italian inspired tomato sauce to bring it all together. My partner and I really enjoyed this last night and I hope you will too. You can use any type fish you like, as long as it flakes easily when cooked. I think I'm going to try smoked salmon next time. For the potatoes, I like to use Yukon gold, but any low starch potato will work well.

Wow this was loved. The story behind this recipe LOL. When I first saw it I was thrilled cuz I am Portuguese and we love our Cod fish. Then when it came time to print the recipe, as I read futher I saw bread crumbs and cheese 0:) Ok so that is when I decided that I would still make it without the breadcrumbs and cheese. I left my daughter to peel and chop potatoes for the recipe as I had to go do some shopping. I came back and she had the potaoes chopped into chunks LOL, her reason.....this is how I always see you make potatoes Mom! Long enough review heh? Ok so I went on with the recipe. All Good! Loved the tomatoe and onions with the wine flavor. If you get a chance to make this w/out the crumbs and cheese, please do so cuz you will like it. At the table I added a few drops of Tabasco sauce. Excellent. Made for Fall PAC 09 I also have a photo, I will post it, but it is not of the nicest, sorry.
