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.

Great recipe for method and starting off point for me to add more vegetable and use ingredients I had. Liked this recipe for the Italian seasoning. Used chunky marinara that I had left over. First sauted in broth 1/4 cup onion, with garlic, and Penzeys pizza seasoning along with basil, oregano, and a shake of cumin. Then added 1 bag of cooked frozen rainbow chard to sauce and when all hot added eggs in the mixture and covered till done. Loved this. Will make often.
