Marinara Sauce by Diverse DinnersIf you have more time though, why not create the marinara sauce yourself? My recipe for marinara sauce is pretty simple and lip-smacking tasty. The sauce consistency is a little coarse, and it is also ideal for meatballs or a tomato base for pizzas.

  • Lower heat to medium and then gradually add marinara sauce.
  • Stir sauce and sausage as you apply the sauce so that they mix together thoroughly.
  • Allow sauce to heat through while stirring.
  • Once sauce is hot create divots in the sauce and sausage to act as wells for the eggs, then crack the eggs into those wells. Do this one at a time to make sure you don't lose your wells.
  • Cover skillet with aluminum foil and lower heat to low and allow eggs to poach slowly.
  • Once eggs are cooked to your liking serve with a touch of black pepper and a sprig of basil.


Both the marinara sauce and sausage are likely to have a decent amount of salt, hence the omission of salt from this recipe. You can apply salt if you like, but I would suggest you do that once served.
