Yum! I was looking for something quick and different and came upon this. We love eggs and this was a great way to make them into a tasty dinner. I made 5: 2 for me and 3 for my husband. Added a little mozzarella on top and served with crusty bread. Will definitely make it again! Read More

I let the eggs simmer in the sauce for 8 minutes instead of 10 for a better texture. It's quick and easy and always gets rave reviews! Read More

I reduced the quantity to make it for 2. My husband was very skeptical but we both liked it. I served it with rice which went well with it. Read More

This is an amazing recipe! I was a bit septic about the combination of eggs and tomato sauce. My meat & potatoes husband and mother-in-law loved it. It will be added to the dinner rotation. I served it over spaghetti squash that I drizzled a little olive oil over it and added some basil and oregano. Read More
