Well, I'm not sure whether the eggs are really Italian or not, but I got the recipe from an Italian cookbook
. The taste was simply scrumptious. Of course, I can't just leave a recipe alone, so I added about 1 Tbs minced garlic, 1 leftover pork chop-chopped, and sprinkled Parm. Reg. over it just before serving.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion -- finely chopped
1 pound tomatoes, peeled and seeded -- chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
6 large eggs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
Heat the oil in a shallow flameproof dish. Add the onion, and cook until soft and golden.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add the tomatoes to the onions, and cook for 5--10 minutes, or until the tomatoes are very soft. Stir in the chopped basil.
Break the eggs, one at a time, and slip them into the dish in one layer on top of the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Dot with butter. Cover the dish, and bake in the oven for 7--10 minutes, or until the egg whites have just set, but the yolks are still soft. Serve at once.
Variation: Sprinkle 2--3 Tbs of freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the eggs before baking for a richer, tastier dish.
