In these days of food convenience and widespread availability prepared sauces like the Marinara can be found everywhere. Good ones too! I love the Trader Joe's brand which comes in several variations such as organic basil, traditional and several others.If by chance you have your own stashed away in the freezer, it will work beautifully with this egg dish.If you have the time and want to make up a quick marinara then make extra and freeze the rest for another time. Do add the chopped red pepper if possible; it gives the sauce a special texture and flavor that is very yummy.Cook the eggs until set around the sides. My husband likes "well done" eggs and if that's the case for you, then cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Personally I favor slightly runny so that the egg runs into the sauce and makes a great dip for my bread.Assemble the dish up to 1 day ahead and keep it covered in the fridge.This basic recipe lends itself to doubling really easily. Choose a larger pan to cook up the sauce and crack 4 or up to 6 eggs into it depending on your crowd.9*SmartPoints (Green plan)5*SmartPoints (Blue plan)5*SmartPoints (Purple plan)6*PointsPlus (Old plan)
