Toasty pearls of fregola sarda pair perfectly with our tomato sauce, which gets a kick of heat from Calabrian chile paste and a touch of creaminess from goat cheese. We’re topping each bowl with a soft-boiled egg for extra richness.

2 Make the soft boiled eggs:

While the pasta cooks, carefully add the eggs to the medium pot of boiling water and cook 6 to 7 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs; season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pot.

Prepare the ingredients:
3 Prepare the ingredients:

While the eggs cook, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and small dice the onion. Cut off and discard any stems from the fennel.

4 Cook the vegetables:

In the pot used to cook the eggs, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced onion and fennel and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the diced zucchini; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes, or until slightly softened. Turn off the heat. Transfer to a plate.

5 Make the sauce:

In the same pot, combine the chopped oregano, tomatoes, ½ cup of water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 6 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
