Cheap, quick, easy and yummy – four of
my favourite things!
This fed two adults and a child (approximately 1/2 a tin of tomatoes per person and an egg each).
1 Onion, chopped
1 Clove garlic, crushed
A few mushrooms, chopped
1 tsp Oregano
1 & 1/2 Tins tomatoes
A couple of squirts of tomato puree
A handful of grated cheese
Fry the onion, garlic, black pepper and herbs in olive oil until beginning to soften. Add the tinned tomatoes, tomato puree and mushrooms and simmer until the mushrooms have cooked.
While the sauce is simmering away put the spaghetti on to cook, following the instructions on the packet for the quantity and cooking time.
When the pasta is nearly done crack an egg into a mug, make a little well in the sauce and pour in the egg; repeat so that there is one egg per person. Note, if your pan is not non-stick you will probably need to put a bit of oil in each well before you add the egg.
After about a minute, turn each egg with a spatula and then sprinkle the cheese over the sauce.
Drain the pasta and divide between shallow bowls. Put an egg onto each serving of pasta and then share out the rest of the sauce.
