SAUCE:
4 tablespoons of margarine
1/2 cup of chopped onion

6 slices (albout 1/2 ounce each) of mozzarella cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Divide the cod into six equal portions.

Place the cod in a large frying pan, season with salt and pepper, pour wine and chicken broth over the fish, and cover. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to 'low', and poach the fish for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Melt the margarine; saute the onion, add the green peppers, and cook gently for 3 minutes.

Add the remaining sauce ingredients except teh cheese slices; simmer for 10 minutes.

Place the fish on an ovenproof serving platter. Cover the fish entirely with the sauce. Place a thin slice of cheese over each portion of fish. Place in the oven for a few minutes, just long enough to melt the cheese.
