Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small red onion, thinly sliced 

1 clove garlic, minced 

1 small yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced 

Pinch crushed red pepper flakes 

Kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander 

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 

3 cups Classic Marinara Sauce, recipe follows

5 to 6 large eggs 

3/4 cup crumbled feta 

3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 

Classic Marinara Sauce:

1/3 cup olive oil

6 cloves garlic, minced 

Three 26-ounce cartons chopped tomatoes 

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 

1 large basil sprig 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

3 tablespoons unsalted butter 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, bell pepper, crushed red pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the coriander and cumin and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the Sauce and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat to low. Crack an egg into a small bowl, make a divot in the sauce, and add the egg. Repeat with the remaining eggs, spacing them evenly around the skillet. Sprinkle the feta on top, avoiding the yolks so as not to break them.
  3. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the egg whites are just set, 10 to 13 minutes. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve immediately.

Take off the heat and stir in the butter until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
