I was the type of child whom you had to chase all the time to make them eat anything, but when it came to eggs in a tomato sauce – chase me no more!

Eggs in tomato sauce. So simple to make, yet so wonderfully delicious. I can eat it all the time without getting tired of it. When I was little girl, I thought this was a traditional dish and everyone loved it as much as I did.

It was later when I grew up that I would understand nobody else, except my mom, would even imagine combining eggs and tomatoes into a single dish. Then I dared my friends to try it and they were amazed by the combination they never thought possible.

So here I am now, sharing our family recipe and daring you to try this wonderful dish as well.
