Italian eggs in tomato sauce and spinach

Italian eggs in tomato sauce and spinach

These Italian eggs in tomato sauce and spinach look like and Italian version of the classical Mediterranean shakshuka recipe,. They come served with with some garlic and chili spinach on a side to make a full meal. My mum used to love eggs and tomato sauce, and for me as well it has been an easy and yummy quick recipe, for when I need something proteins-based, healthy but fancy at the same time.

This recipe can be served for a rich brunch, or really any other time of the day. The spinach on the side, not only complement the recipe perfectly well, but also ensure that you have some fibers intake and that you don’t indulge too much in the yummy sauce. ( they can be a magnet for those bread slices, and might want to exercise some restraint!)
