Fish Italiano

I needed a new way to serve fish, so I came up with this recipe. My family thinks it's superb.

    I actually only made the sauce from this recipe and both my husband and I really liked it. I baked some tuscan chicken sausage, then cut it into slices. I made the sauce as written (using a slightly sweet Riesling), then added in the slices of sausage. I then put this mixture over some angel hair pasta. One small issue I had was that I found the dish to be a bit too salty for my taste, but that was likely due to the fact that the sausage was pre-seasoned. If I do seasoned sausage again, I'll cut back on the salt, but if you're making it with fish, the salt amount is likely correct. I'd definitely make this again.

    My husband and I both really love this dish. The sauce is very rich and filling and the fish provides a wonderful lightness to the dish.
