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.  


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch long strips (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 jar (23.5 ounces) Prego® Farmers' Market Classic Marinara Sauce
  • 6 egg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion: Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and serve with warm pita bread.
  • Step 1

    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.

  • Step 2

    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.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 9 minutes or until the eggs are desired doneness (about 9 minutes for softly set).  Sprinkle with the parsley, if desired.
