▢ 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
▢ 1/4 tsp each sea salt and black pepper
▢ 2 tbsp fresh herbs, chopped (we like using basil & rosemary)

Eggs in Purgatory Recipe with Bona Furtuna EVOO & Marinara Sauce


  1. In a large skillet with a lid, heat oil over medium heat. Add the sliced garlic and red pepper flakes and cook just until the garlic turns golden brown at the edges, about 1 minute. Stir in passata, salt, pepper and herbs, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the Parmigiano-Reggiano and butter.
  2. Using the back of a spoon, make 6 divots in the sauce and crack an egg into each divot. Cover the pan and let cook until the eggs are set, about 2-3 minutes for runny yolks.
  3. In the meantime, toast some crusty bread, drizzle with olive oil and your favorite Bona Furtuna seasoning blend. To serve, sprinkle eggs with more Parmigiano-Reggiano and spoon into shallow bowls. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy.
  4. Mangiamo!
