Easy & Delicious Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a one-skillet dish of eggs poached in a smoky, spicy, vegetable-laden tomato sauce.  While it originated in North Africa it's also popular in the Middle East.  Traditionally served as a breakfast dish it makes a satisfying meatless lunch or dinner as well.  Using Prego Sauce for this recipe makes it easy, foolproof and delicious.  


Heat the oven to 375°F.  While the oven is heating, heat the oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the mushrooms and pepper strips and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the cumin, paprika and crushed red pepper and cook and stir for 1 minute.
Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Stir in the sauce and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Season to taste.  Crack the eggs into the hot sauce.
Bake for 9 minutes or until the eggs are desired doneness (about 9 minutes for softly set).  Sprinkle with the parsley, if desired.
