- 1 jar Family Recipes Roasted Garlic Sauce
- 5 large eggs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- Chopped fresh parsley to garnish
- Chopped fresh cilantro to garnish
- Crusty bread for serving
- Preheat your oven to 375ºF.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 10 minutes or until soft and translucent. Stir in the cumin and paprika and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add in the Mezzetta® Roasted Red Bell Pepper Strips and Mezzetta® Family Recipes Roasted Garlic Sauce and bring to a simmer.
