Eggs Baked In Roasted Tomato Sauce

For meatless Monday, I decided to try to eggs baked in tomato sauce.  I have been wanting to try a roasted tomato sauce anyways, and I do like baked eggs.  The tomato sauce was very easy, and super tasty.  I think it would be a great pasta sauce too.  If you make the sauce ahead  of time, it would be a tasty breakfast.  While it takes 15 minutes to bake, you can be getting ready while it cooks.  I loved this dish!  I accidentally over cooked the eggs.  I have this new microwave that beeps once when the timer goes off and them waits like a minute before it beeps again.  Needless to say, I didn't hear the first (maybe first couple) beep.  Even with the mostly cooked yolks, I loved it.  We had it with some toast, but I think I would like crusty bread better.  You need the bread to sop up that sauce!
