    This looks so good, and I’m not even a marinara girl! 🙂 Although I always love the goat cheese/tomato sauce (queso de cabra? Is that right?) dish at tapas restaurants and this reminds me of that, so I bet I’d like it!

    I’m seriously impressed by how you’ve been able to reclaim balance after having gone back to work so quickly! You’re a rockstar, Emily.

      Oh man, don’t flatter, balance is out of whack this week. It goes from good to terrible so quickly! 🙂

      Ahhhh, goat cheese and tomato sauce, you know I love this idea. I’ve had something similar but not sure I’ve ever had the real deal!

    I find myself saying ‘Shakshuka’ several times now. It has a amusing tone to it, like saying some sort of magic spell. Obviously, I am not familiar with the dish. But this is super simple and easy, I will try it out and impress some of my fitness buddies and say — Hey, have some Shakshuka…

    Anyway I also saw your summer meal plan couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been following it. For a guy, I would actually eat all those meals you included. I made all the dinner recipes (except tortilla pizza, not a fan of arugula, anyway) – all is good, real and filling. I’m always on the lookout for healthy recipes, I had a eye opening experience before that made me change my lifestyle. I’m on my 6th year obsessing on nutrition and fitness, and honestly I’m running out of ideas on dishes to prepare and share.

    What I’m trying to say is, your blog is great and you’ve helped me. Thanks Emily!

    Yes! I used to make a similar dish, but I added chopped spinach to the marinara then cracked the egg in, then served it over polenta. It’s still one of my easy go-to dishes. I’m a little bit obsessed with pasta sauce. I don’t love pasta but I love the sauce.

    Confession: in college, I would add low sodium broth to some jarred marinara and eat it like soup.

    Not sorry haha!

    I’ve never heard of this dish before but I have to admit that it sounds really good. Seems about perfect for a brunch, especially because it looks easy to prepare.

      I usually get mine from Trader Joe’s! They have an organic one that is good, and then sometimes I’ll switch it up with a pepper one (tiny bit of spice), too!
