A less than 30 minute dinner that will have your family clearing their plates!
Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil.
While the oven is preheating, boil the water for the spaghetti. Add in the noodles once the water begins to boil and cook for the time stated on the back of the box.
Coat the tilapia in olive oil, salt and pepper and put it in an oven-safe dish. Place it in the oven once it reaches 375 F. Bake for 12-18 minutes and remove it from the oven once the tilapia is white throughout and flakes apart easily when cut.
While the tilapia is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter and garlic. Cook until garlic is fragrant (about 30 seconds) and then whisk in the flour until it dissolves. Let the roux cook for another minute and then add the milk and half-and-half, stirring constantly. Allow the mixture to slightly thicken (about 8 minutes) and then toss in the basil and Parmesan. The sauce won’t thicken completely until the cheese is added. Add salt and pepper as desired. When the spaghetti is done cooking, drain it and add it to the sauce. Toss with tongs to coat the spaghetti evenly. Serve immediately with the tilapia and pour extra sauce on top.
Note: If making this recipe for 2 people with 2 tilapia fillets, do not decrease the ingredients for the sauce.

This salmon dish is perfect lighter fare for hotter days. I like to serve it with salad greens and charred pita bread to spoon the extra tzatziki on top of. This whole meal comes together before you know it.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
