Baked Eggs Italian-Style


  • 4 cups store bought marinara sauce
  • 1/2 fresh chopped basil
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, such as Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pour marinara sauce into a 9- X 13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle chopped basil over sauce.
  3. Use bottom of a small custard cup or a similarly sized glass to make 8 rounded indentations in marinara sauce. Crack an egg into each of these indentations.
  4. Sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano and red pepper flakes over tops of eggs. Bake until egg whites are set, yolks are a bit runny and cheese has melted, about 18 minutes. Serve by scooping eggs and sauce into individual bowls, using a large spoon.
