Directions

  1. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the asparagus, carrots and spaghetti sauce; cook on medium high heat until vegetables are soft. You may add a little water if necessary.
  2. Push the vegetables to the side of the pan to create four spaces for the eggs. Crack eggs directly into the holes, being careful not to break the yolk. Cook until eggs are done, but the yolk is still soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Nice idea, putting the eggs right in the veggies. I didn't like the idea of the spaghetti sauce though, so I made a gravy from a packet of the chicken seasoning that you get in ramen noodles. Spinach works really nice here; also a sprinkling of fresh parmesan right before serving

I make a chunky veggie spaghetti sauce and had some leftovers on the stove when I found this recipe so I thought I'd give it a try. Very, very good and it's a great way to use leftover veggies. I'd still like to try the original recipe with asparagus and carrots.
