  1. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan, add the peppers and sauté over a high heat for a couple of minutes to soften. Stir in the sauce and heat until piping hot.
  2. Make four hollows in the mixture, then crack an egg into each. Cover the pan with a baking sheet or tray and cook for about 3 mins until the eggs are set to your liking. When ready, season and scatter with parsley and serve straight away with crusty bread.
