This is a traditional Middle Eastern dish that would be served with pita bread for soaking up the yummy sauce. This makes for a quick, easy, inexpensive yet flavor filled breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

-4 cloves garlic, minced
-1 tsp cumin
-1 tsp paprika

-1/8 tsp cayenne
-1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper
-6 eggs
-1/2 cup feta cheese
-fresh chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and bell pepper until soft, 5-10 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, chili powder and cayenne. Saute 1 additional minute. Add crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper; stirring the spices into the mixture. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes. Crack eggs of the top of the pan, cover and cook 5 minutes.
