Parmesean Crusted Tilapia over whole wheat pasta

I never thought making Parmesan crusted anything would be so easy.  Now my way was very simple for a quick lunch last Saturday after the gym, but you could definitely punch it up by adding some other ingredients and spices.

1.  Brush tilapia lightly with an egg wash (egg white and a splash of water) and then press the filets into Parmesan in a low bowl to make the Parmesan coat the fish.  (I just used the Kraft Parmesan off the shelf in the grocery- nothing fancy).
2.  Heat olive oil in a pan and brown both sides of the tilapia.  Tilapia is a very thin fish that cooks very quickly so a few minutes on each side did it for me.  When you are just serving your self and your husband you can cut it open in the middle to make sure its flaky and done.
3.  Serve over a small sized portion of whole wheat angel hair pasta tossed with a little olive oil, Parmesan, and lemon juice.
