  • Serves 4-6
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook/Bake Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 15.5-ounce can Cannellini beans, drain and rinse
  • 9 ounces cooked turkey sausage, crumbled
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup torn basil leaves
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Olives, optional garnish


  • In a large skillet, combine marinara, beans, and turkey sausage. Bring to simmer, heating thoroughly.

  • Cook covered over medium heat 3-5 minutes for slightly runny yolks. Cook longer for firm, set yolks.

If you don’t have canned cannelloni beans, use any canned beans of your choice. You also can use pork sausage or Chorizo instead of turkey sausage. Watch how to make this recipe here.
