  1. In a large skillet, heat the red pepper flakes in the oil until they become aromatic. Add the tomato sauce and stir well.
  2. When sauce is hot and bubbly, crack the eggs and slide them into the sauce. Cover and simmer on low heat 7-10 minutes, until the whites are firm and opaque but the yolks are still runny.
  3. Serve 2 eggs and 1/4 of the sauce to each diner. Sprinkle each bowl with 2 tbsp grated cheese.
