    This is a version of the popular Israeli dish 'shakshuka' - usually spicy and really delicious. Another thing to add is thin slices of sweet red pepper while cooking the tomatoes.

    My husband and I both really enjoyed this dish. I added onion and fresh herbs to the tomato sauce. I will make this again.

    I don't even particularly care for tomatoes, but this meal was fantastic. My partner made it for a late dinner. We served it over some crunchy bread with spinach as a side dish. It is quick, easy, and delicious. We highly recommend it.

    I made this using jarred salsa. (No canned tomatoes in the house--pathetic pantry, I know.) Tasty and quick. Perfect for starving students, over-worked singles/couples, and harried parents. With such a pretty presentation, one could serve company this dish as brunch or luncheon. Next time I might add some crumbled cooked chorizo and top with queso blanco. (Hmm, Mediterrean, Middle Eastern, and Tex-Mex variants of poaching eggs in a tomato base. I'll bet there are more.)

    Our family thought it was comfort food. Everyone enjoyed it. It was a good meal on a cold rainy winter night.

    This was not a hit in my house. It was quick and easy to make though.

    This recipe is over a 100 yrs. old, as would be my parents if they were still wilth us. Both from Italy and equally good cooks, came to America with peasant recipes, like this one. I grew up enjoying dishes such as this exact one. With quick Italian tomato sauce in a pan, the yolks were broken and poached or cooked hard, served on Italian bread, or as a pasta sidedish with meatballs, neckbones, or Italian sausage, also from the sauce, which we call GRAVY, Thanks for the great memories.
