3. Assembling Parmesan Crusted Tilapia: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place Tilapia fillets in a non-stick, shallow, baking pan. Pour 3 tablespoons of Alfredo sauce onto each tilapia fillet. Use bottom of spoon to evenly coat top of fish. Sprinkle 1/3 cup of prepared tilapia crusting mixture onto each piece and firmly pat breading evenly over Alfredo sauce. Place pan of tilapia on top rack and at the same time, place baking sheet with vegetables on the center rack, in the oven. After approximately 10 minutes, or when the internal temperature of fish reaches 150 degrees F, remove fish from oven and transfer onto a large platter. The vegetables should bake for an additional five minutes, or until tender, and remove from oven. Toss the vegetables with angel hair pasta and place around fish. Sprinkle dish with parsley, garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately.
