  3. Now add the zucchini, eggplant and red bell pepper.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Stir everything and cook for 7 – 8 minutes.
  5. Finally add crushed or coarse pureed tomatoes and stir. Cover the pan, lower the heat and let everything cook until all veggies are soft.
  6. When done, turn off the heat and spread out the sautéed veggies on a serving platter.
  7. Immediately break the eggs on 4 different corners on top of the hot sautéed veggies.
