Ingredients

1 jar
(570 mL)

Healthy Harvest® Pasta Sauce, Arrabbiata

6 cups
(1.5 L)

baby spinach or kale

8

large eggs

8

garlic toasts (see tip)

Shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)

Chopped fresh basil (optional)

Instructions

  1. Warm pasta sauce in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium heat until bubbling. Stir in spinach until wilted.
  1. Use a spoon to create a divot in the sauce; carefully crack an egg into the divot. Working quickly, repeat with remaining eggs, spacing evenly.
  1. Cover skillet and cook, on medium, for 4 to 5 minutes (for runny eggs) or until cooked to preferred doneness.
  1. Spoon eggs and sauce over garlic toast to serve. Sprinkle with Parmesan and basil (if using).

Tips:

  • To make garlic toast; blend 1/4 cup (60 mL) butter with 1 grated clove garlic and 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped parsley. Spread over 8 slices of crusty bread. Bake at 350˚F (180˚C) for about 10 minutes or until toasted.
  • Rotate the skillet as needed during cooking to ensure that all eggs cook evenly.
  • Customize this quick dish by sautéing vegetables such as mushrooms, peppers or zucchini before adding the sauce to the skillet.
  • For meat lovers, stir chopped cooked bacon, sausage, ham or chorizo into the sauce before adding the eggs.
