Uova in Camicia

Uova in Camicia (Italian Baked Eggs with Cheese)

I absolutely love really fresh free-range eggs, and luckily a neighbour of mine has a smallholding and supplies me with a generous quantity.
However, imaginative egg recipes are scarce, apart from the obvious quiche varieties, and omelette varieties (frittata and tortilla), so I recently revived an erstwhile favourite: Uova in Camicia, which translates as ‘egg in a shirt.’
My recipe fell out of favour when I made it with fresh tomatoes, whereas actually good tinned tomatoes give a better flavour.
