100g spinach between four people? 400g spinach, 400g tomato, 4 eggs would be better. After wilting the spinach it hardly covered the dish bottom, and was drowned in tomato. Also, draining the tomatoes before adding would be useful. A good recipe with some small adjustments.

I've just had this for my breakfast and it is a great, quick and easy recipe. I cooked some chorizo and onion first then added the chopped tomatoes and added the spinach to wilt it. Then transferred it to a small oven dish and made a well for my egg. I seasoned my egg with salt and pepper and then popped it in the oven on the recommended temp for 15 mins....mmmm yummy

Really loved this recipe and makes a lovely winter lunch. Even better with some added prosciutto and a little grated parmesan!

This recipe reminds me of a tapas restaurant I once went. It is so delicious!! Seasoned it with some salt, pepper and some sweet paprika to give it an even more yummy taste. For added taste some melted mozzarella would be great too.
