Dice onion, garlic, chilli and sweet pepper and sauté in olive oil until it has a soft light golden brown crust. Add spices and stir well.
Now we add tomatoes in, lower the heat and let it simmer for 3 minutes. Add chopped green herbs, salt and pepper, stir well together and take off the heat.
Cook pasta al dente, according to instructions on the package.
Mix pasta with the vegetables and transfer the mixture over to an enamel dish. Hollow out wells and crack eggs into each well. Now the fish goes into the oven, preheated to 280 degrees, for 5-7 minutes until the eggs are ready.
