Coat a ramekin with cooking spray. Add 3 tablespoons of marinara sauce, 3 tablespoons drained and rinsed white beans, and 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. The ramekin should be about three-quarters of the way full. Make a well in the center of the sauce, and crack an egg into the ramekin. Microwave at 80 percent power for 1 minute, then continue cooking in 20-second bursts at 80 percent power until the yolk and white are set. Remove the ramekin from the microwave, garnish with additional rosemary, and serve immediately.
