Eggs Poached in Tomato-Basil Sauce

poached-eggsBy David Harbilas

This is a perfect example of Italian resourcefulness: take something plentiful, in tomatoes, and make something memorable of it with a simple addition.

This is really a lesson in layering: anyone can hack up some tomatoes and stew them and throw in a few eggs.

But to make even hard, underripe tomatoes and plain, store-bought eggs into something wonderful takes a little skill, in a sense.

Really, all it takes is the patience to dice the tomatoes correctly, cook them as a quick sauce and drop the eggs in and poach them over the right heat to make a really great meal.
