This dinner is just what you're looking for if you want something that's tasteful but not time consuming or fussy. Pair lightly skillet-fried sole with an almond sauce and a lemon-artichoke pasta, and you've got the perfect meal for a casual Friday night.
If you can't locate Petrale or Dover sole, try another mild-flavored flat whitefish, such as flounder, sand dabs, turbot, or halibut. Learn how to make it when you read more. 1/2 pound fettucine, pappardelle, or wide egg noodles Serves 2.
