How to Make It

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add shallots, rosemary, red pepper, and garlic; cook 2 minutes or until shallots are tender, stirring constantly. Add marinara and chickpeas; bring to a simmer. Stir in spinach, salt, and black pepper. Break eggs evenly over marinara mixture. Simmer gently for 15 minutes (do not stir) or until egg whites are almost set. Cover, and cook for 1 minute or until egg whites are set (yolks should still be runny). Sprinkle with cheese.
