Recipe Ingredients for Eggs in Tomato Sauce

1 can (14 ounces) tomato puree
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon of salt
1 freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup of red wine
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Eggs in Tomato Sauce

  1. In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and bring to a boil; season with sugar, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 to 20 minutes minutes. A few minutes before it?s done, I like to add a glug of red wine and let it simmer for a moment.

  2. Gently crack eggs into tomato mixture, cover, and let cook 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, uncover, and let stand 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Transfer each egg to a piece of toast. Spoon over sauce, garnish with cheese, and season with salt and pepper; serve immediately.
