Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.

Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).

Prepare 6 courgettes (use the round sort, as they are easier to stuff): rinse them and slice off the top.

Stage 2 - 10 min.

Scoop out the courgette flesh with a teaspoon or, better still, a pommes parisiennes spoon. Sprinkle the inside of each hollowed out courgette lightly with table salt.

Stage 3 - 3 min.

Bake for about 40 minutes, preferably low in the oven, keeping an eye on the colour towards the end of cooking.

Remarks

Don't throw out the tops or flesh of the courgettes after scooping them out; you can use them in a quick courgette soup with cheese.

If you'd like a hotter flavour, pep up the tomato sauce with a little Tabasco or chilli.
