NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound tilapia fillets, cut into small chunks
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 28 -ounce can San Marzano tomatoes, crushed by hand
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for topping
  • Kosher salt
  • 10 ounces multigrain spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Directions
  • Toss the tilapia, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the garlic and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining garlic and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, until the garlic starts to soften, about 30 seconds. Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, 1/4 cup basil and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 12 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs.

  • When the pasta is almost done, add the tilapia to the skillet with the tomato sauce and simmer, stirring gently, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the parsley and the remaining 1/4 cup basil; season with salt. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce. Divide among bowls and top with more basil.
