Poached Eggs with Arrabbiata Sauce

Poached Eggs with Arrabbiata Sauce

Instead of tomatoes – use the madness of this spicy tomato blend for all of your recipes! The spicy flavor of this sauce immediately evokes the madness amidst the habanero pepper and fresh parsley juxtapositions on the palate. The perfect spice to add to Lentil Stew, Ratatouille or your favorite Mexican meal. Excellent as a dip for shrimp cocktail or chips; spicy and delicious over just about anything – baked chicken or fish, grilled vegetables au gratin or sautéed portabella mushroom! We’ve also added it to a seafood bouillabaisse for a fantastic dinner party idea. Livens up bouillabaisse or any soup… Get crazy!


  • One Jar Scarpetta or Scarpetta Arrabbiata Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon e.v. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh marjoram for sprinkling
  • 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices of baguette

  1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F.

  6. Gently transfer eggs with a slotted spoon to soup bowls and season with salt.
  7. Spoon Arrabbiata sauce generously over eggs and sprinkle with marjoram
