Shakashuka with Barilla Orzo2017-08-16
Chef Yury’s shakshuka brings together the traditional elements of eggs and spices with Barilla Orzo and San Marzano tomatoes.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, meanwhile in a large cast iron skillet heat your olive oil over medium heat, and add the onion and pepper and sauté for about 8 minutes or until softened. Add the spices and garlic along with ½ cup of water; cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and tomato paste and bring to a simmer then season with salt and pepper. Cook the pasta two minutes less than required cooking time, drain and toss with the sauce.
Crack the eggs one at a time into a bowl and place them onto the sauce. Season each egg with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Cover with a lid and let it steam over low-medium heat for approximately 5 minutes or until the egg whites are fully cooked and yolks are runny.
To serve, use a large spoon to get under the egg and grab the sauce and pasta. Place onto a dish and garnish with some chopped parsley, farmer’s cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
