Add the tomato paste and diced tomatoes and simmer until the tomato mixture begins to reduce, about 10-12 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Gently crack the eggs into the mixture, keeping the egg yolks and whites together but not scrambled..

Cover and reduce heat until eggs look poached and are done to your preferred doneness, between two to three minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley and mint, if desired, and serve.
