        Directions

        Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan and add the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil.

        Add the eggs, one at a time to different spots in the pan, allowing them to cook right in the sauce. Scatter the scamorza or mozzarella cheese on top.

        Simmer on low to medium heat, with lid on, for approximately 5 minutes.

        Remove the lid, and add the torn basil leaves at the very end. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.

        Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and add onion, garlic, and chili peppers. Gently fry ingredients together.

        Add pureed plum tomatoes to saucepan. Simmer on low to medium heat for 10 minutes.

        Season with salt, to taste. Add basil leaves at the very end.

          I make this dish during the lenten season and it always a great choice for dinner. Easy to make and the scamorza puts it over the top.

          Made this for a family breakfast today...simple and oh so good. A little toast and bacon on the side made a wonderful start to the day!

          I saw this on today's show. As usual, it was a very simple recipe. Tonight, I opened a jar of tomato sauce from last summer's garden and made this. It was wonderful. This will be a new favorite in our house - quick, easy, healthy and great!
