Method

  1. Put the pancetta and onion in a large, deep frying pan. Cook for 7 mins until the onion is beginning to soften.

  2. Add the peppers, tomatoes and tomato purée to the pan and mix well. Season, cover and cook for 10-15 mins.

  3. Make 4 small wells in the mixture. Crack an egg into each well and cook for a further 5-6 mins or until the eggs have set. Scatter with basil and serve straight away, with crusty bread, if you like.

Not bad. I added 350g of chicken thighs browned with paprika, which I removed from the pan while I softened the onions & pancetta, then returned to the mix with the peppers/tomatoes/etc. It's a good dish but I did feel it could do with something else - perhaps as simple as garlic - to bring out a bit more flavour.

Utterly yummy. Just make it! I also used some special smoked bacon from our butchers.

This is something that I do and it is seriously delicious - can replace the pancetta with tuna flakes and super yummy.

Delicious and much tastier than we expected. Great for using up those multi-pack peppers.
