6 extra-large courgettes

200 g basic bolognaise sauce

5 ml chopped fresh oregano

5 ml fresh basil

250 ml basic tomato sauce

180 ml grated mozzarella

200 g cherry tomatoes, halved chopped fresh parsley for garnishing

Method 15 mins

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

Cut each courgette in half horizontally, then carefully scoop out the centre of the courgette (freeze and add the flesh to your next basic bolognaise recipe), leaving about 2 cm of courgette on the skin.

In a saucepan over gentle heat, heat the bolognaise, oregano and basil together. Add the tomato sauce and heat through.

Spoon the mince mixture into the courgette boats, top with cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake for 12–15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the courgettes are soft.

Garnish with parsley.

Leave out the bolognaise for a super easy and impressive dinner option for vegetarian guests.
