About this recipe:If you're wondering what to do with that marrow, this is a tasty and easy stuffed marrow recipe that the entire family will enjoy. It is packed with flavour and is easy to make. Use Italian sausages with the casings removed instead of the sausagemeat for even more flavour.
Cut the marrow in half lengthways. Scoop out the seeds, and discard. Scoop out the flesh, and chop finely. Leave about 1cm of flesh in the marrow halves. Place the two halves in a suitable baking dish that's been lightly greased.
Mix the chopped marrow flesh with the sausagemeat, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stuff marrow halves with the sausagemeat mixture. Pour pasta sauce over the marrow and cover baking dish with foil.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until sausagemeat is cooked. Remove foil and cover with mozzarella cheese. Cook until cheese is melted.
Lovely recipe and so simple and quick.....but why on earth does the author recommend "shop-bought tomato pasta sauce"? I used my own home-made pasta sauce, and it tasted ten times better!! I added a little sage and thyme to mine too and served it with brown rice......my kids loved it! - 17 Sep 2012
