Italian Style Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a very popular Middle Eastern egg dish floating in a thick spicy tomato sauce. My eldest daughter is hooked on shakshuka and likes to make it often on the weekends. She’s made it so many times that she has started modifying the traditional Middle Eastern recipe for a change of taste scenery. In this new variation of shakshuka she made the egg dish Italian style with herbs such as oregano and basil in a marinara tomato sauce with a cheesy mozzarella Parmesan topping. Super delicious, filling and so decadent all at the same time. Serve it with crusty bread to soak up all the tomato sauce and this makes for a fabulous weekend brunch. Give it a try!
