.: Tips :.http://tonykarenkitchen.com/

1- Adjust the taste accordingly as each pasta sauce taste differently.
2- Do not flip the fish too often while pan-frying it.  Turn it to other side only if one side is brown.
3- It will taste even better if you can put your pan into oven and heat it up with 220 celsius.  The cheese will be crispy.
4- If the sauce is not thick enough, add some corn starch mixture to thicken it.
