Recipe by Secret Agent

My mother grew up during the depression and while food was abundant in their family My Grandfather had a lot of mouths to feed. Nobody wasted anything. My Grandmother described her ingredients as "dear" even though they had a grocery store with access to more than most people in the neighborhood did. My Mom remembered this recipe and made it for us when she had some of her spaghetti sauce (gravy, as we called it)leftover -"Oh, it's not enough for a plate of spaghetti but your Dad will love this", and he did. You can either scramble the eggs or leave them whole - do them in a skillet or do it in the oven. Anyway you do it will be yummy.

Good, simple recipe for your eggs. As good as the pasta sauce you're using. I also like making use of the leftovers.
