Breaded Tilapia with Buttery Angel Hair and Mushrooms

There were quite a few steps for this one, so I'll just go in order. I decided to make this out of stuff I had in my fridge and pantry. It was very yummy!

Tilapia Fillets
Italian Bread Crumbs
Angel Hair Pasta (multigrain or whole wheat)
Olive Oil
1 Egg
Wine (pinot grigio or chardonnay)
lemon juice
garlic powder
First, I mixed the melted butter (about 1 tablespoon), egg, wine, lemon juice, and salt & pepper in a bowl. I dipped the Tilapia in the sauce and then covered with Italian bread crumbs.
Then, baked the Tilapia in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 min and then broiled on low for a few more mins.
After boiling the pasta, I sauteed the mushrooms in the same mixture as above. But, this time, I added more butter (about 4 tablespoons), the onions, garlic powder, cilantro, and basil.
Once the tilapia was done, I placed it over the bed of angel hair pasta and just poured the mushroom and butter sauce over it. Then, sprinkled some parmesan.
It was a hit with the hubby!
