A light Italian classic made with tomato basil pasta sauce from Buddha’s Garden. The sauce does not contain garlic or onion but still retains all the flavour, so it's a healthy, balanced meal that's perfectly safe for all kinds of vegetarians to enjoy.  


  • 4 potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp Italian parsley, chopped, plus extra for serving
  • 1 bay leaf
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • Buddha’s Garden tomato basil pasta sauce 
  • chilli oil (optional)


  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into thin slices and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the potato slices in an olive-oil-coated pan on low heat.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped parsley on top of the potatoes and add the bay leaf.
  4. Cover and cook for 15 mins, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  5. Pour the pasta sauce into the pan and cook for another 15 mins (until the potatoes are tender and the sauce is gently simmering).
  6. Crack the eggs over the potatoes and cover (add a dash of chilli oil if you want a fiery punch).
  7. Serve as soon as the egg whites set. Garnish with more chopped parsley if desired.
