Stuffed Courgettes with Fresh Tomato Sauce

These light and summery courgettes would go well alongside some French beans, and perhaps some buttery new potatoes.

Method

  • Begin by making the sauce: Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion and fry for 5 minutes, taking care not to let it brown.
  • In the meantime, quarter the tomatoes and add them to the pan.
  • Cover and cook over a gentle heat for 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the tomatoes have cooked, liquidise, sieve and add the salt and pepper. Once this is done the sauce can be set aside.
  • Halve the courgettes and cook them in an inch of boiling water for 3 minutes, until they are just about tender, and be sure to drain them well.
  • Scoop out the seeds and place them in a shallow casserole, or grill pan.
  • Mash the Boursin cheese to soften it a little and then add it to the cavity of each courgette.
  • Once each courgette has been generously filled, place them under the grill until they are cooked all the way through and the cheese has started to brown.
  • At the same time gently reheat the tomato sauce to serve with them.
  • Drizzle the sauce over the courgettes and garnish with the dill before serving. Enjoy!
