Fresh and perfectly light for spring, but definitely not lacking in savory flavor! This simple baked cod is based on something I remember making ages ago. I have no idea where that recipe went, but it was an overly complicated baked fish in paper. I used to absolutely love it, but I lost the recipe over the years in one of the many house moves. And I never seemed to have time to make it anyways.

Tender pasta tangled up with caramelized onions and spinach, sauced with tomatoes, and baked into a perfection of cheesy comfort!

And… when it involves molten cheese, you can always count me in!

Mexican food always sounds good to me, and I particularly love the flavor of smoky chipotle added into as many dishes as possible. It’s one of those flavors that simply never gets old. And maybe that’s because it’s so multidimensional, being simultaneously smoky/spicy/earthy/with a hint of sweetness hanging out there in the background.
