Eggs poached in Tomato Sauce aka Shakshuka

I cannot believe this has been sitting in my drafts for so long.  I actually made this and was super excited about it at the time too.  I looked on both cameras, looked all through Picasa, and cannot believe that I didn't take a picture of the outcome!  You will have to settle for a Flickr picture instead, but this was really good.  I served it with Naan, but it is a Jewish dish so Pita's may be more traditional.

The recipe I followed of course comes from Saveur, but they never called out the name of this dish.  It was only when I started searching for eggs poached in tomato sauce that I found out.  Another dish I found while I was looking for more information about this dish was Moroccan Ragout with poached eggs.  The Shakshuka was almost a vegetarian dish (eggs are ok with some vegetarians but cheese made with animal rennet is not)  the ragout adds a lamb sausage.  I will do the Shakshuka again, but the lamb sausage sounds pretty good too.
