This traditional hearty egg dish gets an extra colorful veggie boost with fresh zucchini and radishes. Keep a close eye on the eggs once you place the skillet under the broiler--a soft yolk is a part of this saucy recipe's charm. This well-rounded main dish is equally welcome at dinner as it is for breakfast.
