Parmesan Cheese Crusted Cod with Fresh Pasta and Broccoli

We found some fresh tomato-basil pasta at our farmers market and decided it would be good with broiled fish.  Make a white sauce by mixing 1T butter and 1T of flour in a sauce pan.  When it is smooth and bubbly, add milk/cream until it reaches the consistency you desire.  Add 3T fresh basil leaves that have been chopped and salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and warm until you are ready to use it.  Season some flour with salt and pepper.  Scramble one egg with 1/4C water in a pie plate.  Make a mixture of 1/4C dry bread crumbs and 1/4C grated parmesan cheese.  Roll the fish in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs.  Broil in the oven until flaky, about 5 min. on a side.  Cook the pasta in boiling water.  Fresh pasta requires much less time to cook than dry pasta; perhaps 2-3 min. at the boil.  Sauce the pasta and serve along with the fish and steamed broccoli.
