Eggs poached in tomato sauce - yum!
This is so easy, and so good. Just make your tomato sauce -- or pour it from a jar -- in a skillet. When it's steamy hot, carefully break one egg into a small bowl, then place it atop your sauce. Do the same for however many you are feeding. In our case, it was just me and my husband. If you have a larger crowd, use a larger skillet. The sauce doesn't need to be more than a half-inch or an inch thick.
Cover the pan and cook on medium-low until the egg is set. Spoon one egg and some sauce onto pasta or toasted bread -- we did it on pasta.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
