Eggs Baked in Tomato Sauce

Our variation on shakshuka is prepared in individual baking dishes and makes for an easy breakfast, lunch or dinner. We like to serve this when we have friends visiting. Make the tomato base in advance and then just heat it up, add the eggs and bake it in the oven. The nice thing about the individual dishes is that you can bake some longer than others depending on how your family and friends like their eggs prepared. You can easily make this recipe the traditional way in one large pan.
