Rustic Shakshuka with Feta – Naan Bread Recipe

Originating around 2600 BC in Tandoor India the Naan bread is one of the world’s first flatbreads.  Naan became a staple of ancient India, evoking delicious flavor, versatility and portability. The word “naan” is derived from the Persian word “non” which refers to “bread.” I’m a fan of Naan bread is a great alternative to breads and wraps and I enjoy using it many surprising meals.  This morning my son used oblong Naan bread in place of traditional slices of bread with his cold cuts, cheese and lettuce packed for lunch.  Today’s recipe share is one of my favorite with ingredients like fresh eggs, spices, tomatoes and feta cheese – HEAVEN!!!!
