Recipe by Philippa Davis
Serves 2 for a delicious brunch, lunch or dinner.
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely sliced
1 tsp finely chopped rosemary
800g x of tinned chopped tomatoes
1 x 400g tin cooked butter beans, drained and lightly rinsed (240g drained weight)
50g black pitted olives
200g spinach leaves
4 free range / organic hen eggs
Austen cheese 160g
1) In a wide shallow pan, gently heat the oil and garlic on a low heat. When the garlic has just started to go golden stir in the rosemary, fry for a few seconds then add the tinned tomatoes, butterbeans and olives. Season with a little salt and pepper, bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2) Add the spinach, cover, and cook for a few minutes until wilted.
3) Make 4 dips in the sauce and carefully crack an egg into each ( do not stir) and scatter over the Austen. Cook on a low heat for a couple of minutes or until the eggs are just cooked.
Serve straight away with some bread to mop up all the sauce.
