I love breakfast, as I've mentioned countless times before. I'm always on the lookout for new ways to prepare eggs - you know, so I don't have to force scrambled eggs on Cody every morning, even though I'd be more than happy to eat plain scrambled eggs every single morning of my life. After seeing countless "baked egg" recipes on pinterest and various other sources, I knew I had to try it.
The problem was - even though all the recipes I saw claimed it was "quick" and "easy" - it wasn't good enough for me. When I wake up in the morning - hungry - I don't want to wait for an oven to heat up. I can't be the only one, right?
I want to march into the kitchen, slap a pan on the stove, throw some stuff in it and eat. I don't like to wait, especially when it comes to food. So, I decided to take the ideas that I saw all over pinterest and create this truly easy and quick Italian Eggs recipe.
This is my new go-to breakfast - no doubt about it. It only needs 4 ingredients that you, most likely, already have in the fridge/pantry and 3-5 minutes of cooking. It doesn't get any better than that.
Quick Italian Eggs
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup marinara sauce
- ½ cup spinach (roughly chopped)
- ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
- to taste salt and pepper
- Pour the marinara to a small sauté pan.
- Add the spinach and break in the eggs.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Top with cheese.
- Put pan on stove at a medium to high heat.
- As soon as the Marinara starts bubbling, cover and cook for 3 - 5 minutes.
- We cooked ours for 4 minutes and it gave a medium egg.

Nice beautiful recipies wow????☺????
Delicious! I made with goat cheese instead (I didn't have mozzarella). Still turned out great!
Oh, it's like a Shakshouka:
That is good, especially with white bread or Challa/Brioche. Works very well with feta too.

I notice that your responses say "this recipe looks yummy...I am going to try it". In other words, they have not. I
am suggesting why not...neither they, nor I will try them. I love most of your recipes and truly want to try them.
However the recipes are so scattered out, ads mixed in, and when the cook tries to print them, the ads are included!
That is not fair to the interested cook. We do not want to waste ink and paper on those kinds of recipes. Please
select someone to edit your delicious recipes so that they will be "Cook Friendly". I, for one, really want to try them.

It is perfect, I am only asking you to "perfect" your recipes.
Hi Peggy, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I checked the "print recipe" button and it does in fact include the little ads and I have recently joined an ad network and wasn't aware that it would place ads right inside the recipe card. I will definitely work on improving this right away. I appreciate that you took the time to let me know about this issue.
