This creamy oven-baked cod requires hardly any prep! You'll combine pesto and soft cheese to make a creamy pesto sauce, top with chopped courgette, cherry tomatoes and cod and then pop it in the oven to bubble away. Serve with crispy potatoes to the side. Delicious! (Gluten-free, suitable for coeliacs).
