Ingredients

4 eggs

1 tbsp evoo

1/2 tbsp butter

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 cherry bomb peppers or 2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1 pint cherry tomatoes

herbs like basil, oregano or thyme

1# pasta (I like spaghetti but any shape will work)

1/4 cup grated parmesan

1/2 cup pecorino romano

basil for garnish

Directions

Sous Vide Eggs

Step 1

Heat your sous vide to 63 degrees Celsius.

Step 2

Add your eggs and cook for 45 minutes.

Step 3

Once cooked, place them in an ice bath to cool.

Step 4

Remove after 2 minutes and set aside.

For the Pasta

Step 1

In a large skillet, add garlic cloves and chopped cherry bomb peppers (or crushed red pepper flakes).

Step 2

Then turn heat on low/medium-low to allow garlic and chiles to perfume to the oil and slowly cook.

Step 3

Once the garlic is light golden on the edges only, add your tomatoes.

Step 4

Turn the heat to medium-high, add your herbs and cover with a lid. Season with s/p.

Step 5

Cook for 7-10 minutes or until cherry tomatoes have burst. Set aside.

Step 6

Cook for your pasta in salted boiling water. Drain your pasta 2 minutes before being cooked and save 1.5 cups of pasta water.

Step 7

Add your pasta to the skillet with tomatoes and add 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a gentle simmer and allow sauce to thicken and noodles to absorb the sauce. Add more water if necessary

Step 8

Once the pasta is done to your liking, add another 1/4 or so of pasta water and all the cheese. Stir quickly to emulsify cheese into sauce. Turn the heat off and add basil.

Step 9

Crack the sous vide on the long side gently and allow the egg to rest into a spoon. Place the egg on top of the pasta and add more herbs and cheese if you like. Dig in!
