In This Recipe
Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and let them get soft and fragrant for a minute. Then add the diced tomatoes, crushed red pepper, smoked paprika, salt and parmesan. Stir it all together and let it gently simmer for 5 minutes.
While the "purgatory" mixture simmers, crack each of the eggs into their own little individual bowls. Then gently slide each of them on top of the purgatory mixture, with 5 around the edge and one in the middle. Cover the skillet with its lid and let the eggs poach for 2-3 minutes. Once the eggs are poached, its ready! Sprinkle additional parmesan on top along with the chopped basil. Serve immediately with toast!
