Eating Well recipe Cod with Tomato Cream Sauce

Ok, so the photo stinks- but this Cod recipe rocks!   It is from a magazine we carry in the store called Eating Well.  I am lucky to have among my vendors, fresh fish dealers.  I don't sell fresh fish in the store, but I do get it for personal use and Cod is our favorite.
