      Great recipe! Sometimes I add some olives and capers to the tomato puree, just for a change of pace.

      Made these in individual servings and finished the last step in the oven (in those small oven proof ceramic dishes). FANTASTIC. It was easier to control how each person wished to have their eggs that way. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. Served with various breads, Very easy really. Can be prepared all the way till putting the eggs in the night before.
