Ali Maffucci’s Simple Spiralized Shakshuka

For a kick of salty flavor, sprinkle feta over the shakshuka as soon as you pull it out of the oven.

  1. Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch skillet with a lid over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add all the bell pepper noodles, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add the tomato paste and stir to combine. Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika, and cayenne and cook for 2 minutes to allow the flavors to develop. Add the diced tomatoes and their juices and cook until the liquid begins to reduce and thicken, 5 to 7 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your preferences.
  3. Create six cavities in the tomato mixture with a spoon. Crack one egg into each cavity, cover the pan, and simmer until the eggs are just set, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Garnish with the parsley and serve.
