Reviews for Baked Italian Tilapia
"I found this to be a simple and delicious recipe! I didn't have green pepper on hand! I did use a shredded Italian 5-cheese blend, rather than Parmesan cheese and four tilapia filets. Also, I didn't drain the tomatoes-I just spooned the tomatoes and juice over the fish. Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein"
