- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Pinch crushed red chili flakes
- 2 cloves garlic
- One 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
- Salt and pepper
- 4 cups leftover pork ragu
- 1 cup basil leaves, torn
- 12 large eggs
- Crusty bread, for serving
In an extra-large skillet with high sides, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and cook garlic and chili flakes for about 2 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook 2 to 3 minutes, then stir in ragu and bring to a simmer.
Once the sauce is simmering, use a spoon to carve out 12 wells and crack an egg into each well. Lower the heat and tent the pan with a sheet of foil. Cook, simmering, until whites are cooked through and yolks are slightly runny, about 7 minutes. Serve with crusty bread.
