Preparation

Heat oil in large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saut onion 5 minutes, until softened; add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add roasted peppers, tomatoes, and cayenne. Cover and cook 10 minutes, until vegetables are very soft, stirring occasionally. Uncover and simmer over medium heat until sauce is thick, about 10 minutes, stirring often. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Mixture can be made up to 2 days ahead and reheated).

In large bowl, beat eggs until blended. In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add eggs and basil. Cook, stirring constantly with rubber spatula, 12 minutes, until soft curds form and eggs are barely set. Add pepper mixture and ham; stir just until mixed.

Comments: The trick to this dish is to reduce the tomato mixture to thick sauce that won't break and liquefy when added to the eggs. If you've never made scrambled eggs this way before, youre in for a treat. Steady, slow cooking turns them incredibly creamy.

This is a great meal but there was one thing I changed, instead of using cayenne pepper I used shredded cheader chesse and it was great.
