I have been looking for an easier Shakshuka recipe than I have seen out there, but this went a slightly different direction...hmmmm....thinking about this.

Just made this. Delicious! The texture and little bit of kick from the pepper flakes was nice. Might experiment eating this over sautéed spinach or adding spinach as a.the base. Could make it a complete meal. :) Really enjoyed eating this and picking up the spicy tomato flavor with the eggs. I would put this in the comfort food category. Thank you Chef John for a new flavorful twist for eggs!
