Quick Fix Dinners: Parmesean Crusted Tilapia with Creamy Garlic Pasta

Happy Monday friends!! I fixed the most delicious dinner last night and after a few requests via Facebook this morning I'm going to share it with you here so you'll always have a link reference to the recipe. First let's start with the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia.... What You Will Need: 4 Tilapia Filets (Defrosted) 1/4 Cup of Parmesan Cheese 1/8 Cup of Butter 2 Tblspoons of Mayo 1 Tablespoon of Fresh Lemon Juice 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of dill Salt and Pepper to taste How to Cook: Turn broiler on high - place tilapia filets in a foil lined pan While broiler is heating mix all the ingredients above except tilapia together in a small bowl - set aside Place tilapia filets in oven for 3 minutes Take tilapia filets out of oven, flip over, and pour mixture on the un-cooked side Place back in over for 3-4 more minutes Done!! Now for the Creamy Garlic Pasta Ingredients: 4 clove garlic, minced 2 Tbsp butter 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper 3 c chicken stock 1/2 lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta, uncooked 1 c parmesan cheese, grated 3/4 c heavy cream How to Cook: In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1-2 minutes. Mix in the butter until melted. Add the salt, pepper and chicken stock. Raise the heat to high and let it come to a boil. Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate. Reduce the stove to medium heat and mix in the parmesan until completely melted. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy and let me know how it turned out for you!! :)
