Before I knew this was a thing that almost every chef has made, I saw this simple recipe in a cookbook of Giadas.  Like so many of Giandas recipes, I liked it because it was made with simple ingredients, and very few steps and in this case not even one pan or bowl.  just 4 small bowl.  So the recipe met not just one but all of my credentials, including the healthy part, and under 10 WW points per serving.

In my version of Eggs in Purgatory, I use only 3 ingredients, one of them being a dusting of Basil which is optional.  I’ve seen lots of recipes with shaved parmeasan over the top, Ive seen it with vegetables such as onion, green peppers, artichoke mixed into the marinara sauce and baked with the egg, but truly like my eggs in purgatory pretty basic.  However, I do have a spin on mine.  I used the da Giulia Arrabbiata sauce because first and foremost it it my favorite sauce and everything taste better spicy to me, but all the heat kinda makes sense with the Purgatory theme.  Any red sauce will do however, even Vodka can work,and by all means dress it up if you so desire.  Add sausage, mushrooms, or top with mozzarella, go crazy!  This is up there with the easiest recipes Ill ever post.
