Shakshouka-Style Eggs with Red Onion, Sweet Peas and Balsamic

Man, it is FRIGID in Illinois these days. So I’m pretty into all things hot and saucy and soupy at the moment. And these shakshouka-style eggs totally did the trick with red onion, yellow pepper and sweet peas along with extra crushed red pepper… fresh and warming all at the same time. Had this for…
