Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the peppers, onions, tomatoes and olives into a large, deep baking tray and cook for 15 mins until they start to soften and char at the edges.
  2. Stir in the passata, butter beans and seasoning, then make 4 little areas and nestle in the cod. Return to the oven and cook for a further 15 mins until the cod is cooked through. Sprinkle over the basil and serve with crusty bread, if you like.

Absolutely no need to buy all the ingredients and especially as you get a bunch of tomato skins. Just get a jar of Tesco Finest Puttanesca Pasta Sauce which contains everything listed, heat it, and place cod in sauce until flaky. Delicious.

Absolutely loved this! Added a bit of red chilli and garlic for a bit of a kick and it was delicious.

Really tasty, I definitely recommend this one. I did it with prawns rather than cod, and it was lovely!

My fiancé thought with such few and simple ingredients this might be a little boring. It's really not and super easy and fast to do. I would add a little sugar to the sauce in order to take the tart taste from typical tinned tomatoes or passata. The addition of the crusty bread makes it perfect. Will definitely make again.

quick, simple, and so delicious! Made it with unsmoked haddock and added capers, a little hot paprika (pimentón), thyme and a bit of rosemary as well as the basil. Might add some chili next time for an extra kick, will def be making again.

Lovely, tasty, easy recipe. Ideal for a work night. I used a passata with garlic for a bit of extra flavour. Might try adding garlic cloves with the peppers and tomatoes next time.

Delicious, quick meal. Added a courgette for extra veg and left out the beans (method doesn't tell you when to add them!) sure this will become a favourite as both my husband and 3 year old liked it.
