For those who like cheese and wine,so does this fish! Try brandy or white vermouth instead of the wine,for more crunch substitute flaked almonds for the pine nuts.We enjoy this with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

This was awsome...easy to make, great taste, low in carbs and converted to serving a single serving easily. (hate left overs) I just had to join recipezaar just to comment on this. Being single I find it hard not to depend on fast food. I have made a promise to myself to seek out recipes and try them. This is a keeper.
Excellant. Great flavor, texture and presentation. The bacon, cheeses and wine add a wonderful rich flavor that combines perfectly with the sweetness of the red peppers and the nutty crunch of the pine nuts. I made the recipe as directed, sustituting haddock for the cod and served it with Fabulous Frozen Green Beans #37780. I will add this to my book of magic tricks - it's a delightful and easy way to dress up most any white fish.
Really quite good and really quite fattening! I will definitely make this again, although not often because of the fat content, although what do you expect from something with so much cheese? The brie went wonderfully with the white wine and bacon and the red pepper was a nice finishing touch. It is a more subtle dish than I usually make and the presentation is lovely. Thanks for posting!
