Heat the oil in a large flame-proof casserole dish or cast iron skillet on a low heat. Add the onions and a sprinkle of salt, cover and cook gently for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Throw in the peppers and cook over a medium heat covered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft. Mix in the oregano, thyme and bay leaves, some black pepper and salt if needed. Tip the courgettes and aubergines into the mix and cook over a medium heat for 10 mins. Stir in the tomatoes and cover for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Carefully crack the eggs over the mix, trying not to break the yolk. Cook them in the sauce on a medium heat for 5 minutes or so until the eggs are cooked. Add the chopped parsley to serve.
