This combined with a spicy tomato sauce works perfectly together with the baked eggs on top.

nests when eggs have cooked
- 4 eggs
- 2 courgettes
- 1/2 of an onion
- tin of tomatoes
- 2 garlic cloves
- smoked paprika
- S & P
- Very finely slice your courgette into courgetti strands. If you have a mandolin then this will speed you up massively, otherwise patience and a sharpe knife will suffice.
- Finely chop your onion and garlic and soften them in a small saucepan.
- Add your tinned tomatoes and spices and cook slowly on a low heat.
- Heat up a large frying pan, adding some oil, and season your cougetti strands.
- Slowly fry the courgetti until it goes soft.
- Divide your courgetti strands into 4 small heaps and spread them out to create a little hole in the middle of each nest.
- Crack your eggs gently into the nest and cook slowly on a low heat, season yolks with S&P. Ensure that you cover your frying pan with a lid, so the top of the egg cooks fully and the bottom doesn't burn.
- Carefully crack your eggs into the courgette nests to ensure the white dosn't over spill the nest
