1 green bell pepper, seeded

2 garlic cloves, crushed
5-6 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup purreed canned tomatoes or tomato juice
good pinch dried basil
4 eggs
8 teaspoons light cream
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thinly slice the red and green peppers. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Fry the onion and garlic gently for about 5 minues, until softened.
2. Add the peppersto the onions and fry for 10 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and puree, the basil and seasoning. Cook gently for a further 10 minutes until the peppers are soft.
3. Sppon the mixture into four ovenproof dishes, preferably earthenaware. Make a hole in the center and break an egg into each. Sppon 2 tsp cream over the yolk of each egg and sprinkle with a little pepper.

I didn't love it, but I did like it and it was simple so I wil have it again sometime. Adam doesn't like eggs so he didn't eat any, just me. I took the rest to work for lunches. :o)
