1 – Place all ingredients EXCEPT eggs in a very large, covered baking dish. Stir well. Microwave on high for 6 minutes.

2 – While the sauce is cooking, place each egg in a small dish, season with salt, pepper, and olive oil.

3 – When sauce has finished cooking, make an indentation in two places in the sauce. Pour an egg into each indentation. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. (If using 4 eggs, microwave on high for 5 minutes, longer if you like firm eggs.)
