    Yum! Delicious and spicy meal that is a cinch to put together. I live alone and cut all ingredients in half, using a 10 inch nonstick skillet. Works great. Easy way to use up leftover eggs.

    In Tunisia this dish, made with olive oil (without the rendered bacon) is called aijja. I understand from the preceding comments and mine, too that it must be Mediterranean in origin.

    My mother made this as an Italian Lenten dish--no meat, just Bell peppers, onion and seasoned tomato sauce. We called it "Eggs in Purgatory." Does anyone know the real Italian name?

    this is actually a Moroccan recipe at it's core, called *Shakshuka*. my eldest daughter recently opened a new restaurant in Tel Aviv, called Rico's Shakshuka-Bar. the whole menu is based on this type of dish, with different additions to it.

    Really great! I made mine less spicy. You can do this with a regular Italian style sauce, as well.
