Parma Wrapped Cod and Roast Veggies

30 Jan


This is such a delicious, straight forward meal that is perfect for a midweek supper.It looks fancy but it couldn’t be any simpler. It is low calorie as well but doesn’t skimp on flavor. It is so yummy with a hunk of fresh crusty bread to mop up the juices with.
