Italian Stuffed Courgettes
These Italian Stuffed Courgettes are a great midweek recipe. Quick, healthy and delicious, you can have these on the table in just 40 minutes. I love to make these when I need to use up courgettes I’ve grown in the garden.
I start by baking the courgettes in the oven for about 20 minutes. While they are baking, I make a stuffing from breadcrumbs, pine nuts, spring onions, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, thyme leaves and cheese. I place the stuffing on top of the half cooked courgettes and bake for a further 15 minutes or so. Yum – you can’t beat this recipe
