Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

I needed a quick and easy dish to make for dinner tonight, and this one fit the bill. It only takes 5 ingredients, and it comes together in a snap. The fish is beautifully flaky and light, and the lemon at the end adds the perfect amount of acidity. This time around, I served it with some leftover penne that I had in the fridge that I heated up with some frozen peas, butter and garlic, and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top. Yum!
