Step 1

Preheat broiler. Pat the tilapia dry with a paper towel. Place on a baking sheet lined with foil. Coat the foil with cooking spray or olive oil to prevent sticking. Sprinkle each fillet with 2 Tbsp. of Parmesan cheese. Broil for 10-11 min. or till the fish is no longer translucent & the cheese is browned on top. Top each fillet with fresh tomatoes & a Tbsp. of pesto. If you have any remaining cheese, add just a tiny bit over the top of the fish, tomatoes & pesto; serve immediately.
