Step by step recipe:

    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.

    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.
