You would be surprised if I say I spent more then 5 minutes trying to decide how to name this post.
It is post about a dish my mum use to make for me.
My mum worked all her life as a teacher, first as a village teacher , at a time when teachers were really respected and kids would get up early in the morning and walk for few km , on the rain snow or sun to come to the school.
A lot of generation passed through 'her hands' and I find it amazing how these kids, now adults with there own families, stop her on the street sometimes and say: 'Do you remember me.. I was in your class in the third row', and she does remember.
Even she educated so many kids, she always had time for us. She was and still is tough mum, with a lot of authority, but she dedicated all her life to us...me and my sister.
There is something I inherited from her...we both show our love through food. I so much enjoy to make favourite food for my family and friends. And she does that always. So..this dish is one of the dishes my mum made to me, I love it so much.
Now I changed it a bit, add some ingredients I didn't like as a kid and I hope you will like it also.
1/2 pepper, chopped
handful cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1tbs olive oil
100g ground beef
2tbs tomato pulp
chopped parsley leaves
pecorino, finely grated
1tbs olive oil salt pepper
Place olive oil in a pan and add garlic and onion. Cook for 1 min and add green pepper and tomato. After 2 minutes add tomato pulp and parsley. Add salt and pepper and 2 tbs water.
Cook for few minutes,add water if needed.
In a meantime heat the oven to 180C, grill. When meat and vegetables are cooked place them in individual oven dishes, and place egg on top of each. Sprinkle with grated pecorino and put in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked.
Sprinkle with some more grated pecorino and serve.
