Fresh cod fillets are wrapped around slices of fontina cheese and
fresh asparagus spears, then topped with a simple, yet delicious tomato sauce.
The cod fillets are then nestled on a bed of blanched fresh baby spinach and
all is served on top of  hot, cooked angel hair pasta.

Saucy Cod Fillets Florentine is a different and
delicious way to enjoy fresh cod fillets.
Not only is this recipe fairly inexpensive to make,
it's a great low-cal meal option.

If you and your family aren't big fans of asparagus, not to worry...
use scallions, haricots verts or baby rainbow carrots instead.
I have also made this recipe, with the same excellent results,
simply by replacing the fresh cod fillets with turkey or veal cutlets.
Keep in mind that cooking times will vary when
substituting cutlets for the cod fillets and
also when replacing the asparagus spears with different vegetables.
