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 kids loved it!-17 Sep 2012

Added two Romano peppers. Used carton of chopped tomatoes and added a splash of wine. Used sausagemeat with almond and apricot. Tsp tomato puree, tsp anchovy paste.-11 Aug 2014

Stuffed Marrow With Beef Mince

With marrows in abundance in the summer, the vegetarian stuffed marrow recipe on this website have proved very popular so a further recipe for a meat option is here for you.

Marrow is a plentiful vegetable in the summer – beloved of village fairs and allotments and probably underated as a great base for many recipes

I think stuffed marrow is most successful when it is cut into slices and each ring is stuffed. It cooks much more evenly, and more quickly than stuffing a whole marrow.

This stuffed marrow with mince recipe, is an easy and delicious option. It is, though, important to point out you can use your favourite mince recipe. You can use a bolognese or chilli (or vegetarian) sauce to stuff a marrow, so do experiment. Cheese is always good grated on the top, too.

You can stretch the mince further by adding some oats or lentils to the mix too. Where possible, buy your vegetables – and meat from local shops.

Stuffed Marrow Recipe

Summer for me always means a good supply of courgettes or zucchinis in the garden. But if it rains as much as it has this summer, the courgettes will start turning into marrows if you don’t check them often enough and all the other vegetables will be producing copiously. This stuffed marrow recipe is a tasty way of using the summer glut of vegetables. You could stuff them with a mince mixture or add chorizo sausage to spice up the recipe, but I like the herb, tomato and mushroom flavour and the cheesy crust just tops it all off.

1 (or more) marrow
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Vegetables, finely chopped (I used tomatoes, capsicum and mushrooms)
1 tsp each dried oregano and basil (use fresh herbs if you have them)
handful parsley, chopped
fresh or dried breadcrumbs
cheese of your choice, grated

Heat oven to 200C. Cut the marrow in half lengthways and scoop out the middle. Put the halves, cut-side up, in a large roasting tin.
Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion and saute until soft. Add the garlic, vegetables, and dried herbs. Turn heat down to a low simmer and cook for 10 mins, then stir through the parsley.
Spoon the vegetable mixture into the marrow halves, cover with foil and bake for 30 mins.

Mix the breadcrumbs and cheese together and sprinkle over the top of the marrow halves. Return to the oven uncovered for 10 mins until the crumbs are golden and crisp, and the marrow is tender.

Cut marrow in half and scoop out middle Saute other veges in a pan Spoon vegetable mixture into marrow halves
After 30 mins, sprinkle with cheese and breadcrumbs Bake until golden and crispy Serve and enjoy!

Marrow with herb sausages

It is worth taking your time over this, leaving the onions to cook over a moderate heat until they are soft enough to crush between finger and thumb and the sausages should be a deep, burnished brown before they are removed from the pan. There is no sauce here, just a sticky coating of juices from the pan. A simple recipe, but not one to be hurried.

Serves 4
marrow 1 kg
onions 2, medium
rosemary leaves 3 tbsp
olive oil 5 tbsp
sausages 6, plump and coarse-textured

Remove the skin of the marrow with a vegetable peeler and discard. Halve the marrow lengthways and scrape out the fibrous seedy core with a spoon. Cut the marrow into approximately 3cm cubes. Peel and roughly chop the onions, then finely chop the rosemary.

Warm a couple of tablespoons of the olive oil in a large, shallow pan then add the onions. Let them soften over a moderate heat, stirring regularly, until translucent and pale gold, then remove them with a draining spoon and set aside.

Place the sausages in the pan and let them brown in the oil and juices left by the onions, turning them occasionally so they brown evenly. Remove from the pan and set aside. Pour the remaining olive oil in the pan, introduce the cubes of marrow and the chopped rosemary and let them colour evenly, moving them around the pan as necessary. They are ready when translucent and pale gold.

Return the onions to the pan. Slice each sausage into 3 or 4 short pieces and combine with the onions and marrow. When all is hot, golden and coated with sticky pan juices, serve.

The Curly Cook's Blog

Well, Friday night was stuffed marrow night, washed down with one too many glasses of red I have to admit, so I was suffering from a rather sore head on Saturday – opps!

We seem to have an endless supply of marrow at the moment, and whilst I have a few other uses for them (marrow with cheese sauce, marrow in curry, marrow to top up my courgette soup when I’m running a bit low on courgettes…), the most popular recipe by far in our household is stuffed marrow.

There are two variations, and it’s pretty much the same recipe either way – you can use mince or chicken. There are a few stuffed marrow recipes floating around on the web I’ve seen, and actually there is even stuffed marrow in my Mrs Beeton’s Cook Book, but I’m pleased to say that this is actually my own recipe (!) so do give it a try and let me have your feedback, hopefully you’ll like it! Have to give hubby some credit for input on this one – but mainly it’s mine! ha ha ha

Well, we&aposre talking about the vegetable variety here!

Don&apost get confused between bone marrow (the jelly like stuff found inside bones) and vegetable marrow. It&aposs vegetable marrows we&aposre talking about here!

So what are marrows exactly?

In a word or two, overgrown courgettes or large zucchini. Another word for courgettes is Zucchini, but the botanical name is Cucurbita pepo. The general family are called squash, Curcurbita. So, "Is zucchini squash?" Yes!

Well, members of the Curcurbita family, which are technically fruits, as they contain seeds. The Curcurbita family include pumpkins, cucumbers, zucchini and marrows. They are used as vegetables, though, in cooking, in the same way as tomatoes, also fruits, are used as a vegetable.

What are Summer Squash and what are Winter Squash?

The difference between summer squash and winter squash lies in their use. Summer squash are harvested young - this is what I would call a zucchini, for example. I would expect it to be no longer than about 30 cm, have soft, edible skin and I would eat all of it. If you leave it to become what I would call a marrow, it&aposs bigger, the skin is tough and inedible, and I would discard the seeds and stringy innards. (You can use the seeds separately).


  • 1 marrow
  • 1 tin (4oog) chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin (400g) kidney, borlotti or cannelini beans
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons milled flax
  • 1 tbsp dried mixd herbs OR
  • 2 handfuls of fresh herbs — thyme, oregano and marjoram are a nice mix but use whatever you have to hand
  • Half a red chilli/pinch of chilli powder
  • 100g grated cheddar (more if you like)
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Makes 4 large marrow rings.

Sausage Stuffed Marrow recipe - Recipes

Just over a week ago now, my church held a harvest festival lunch. First, they collected in tins and other preserved goods to give out to people in the community, and then everyone shared in a feast made up of dishes that each different family bought to the table. There included salads, quiches, and cold meats, as well as some authentic African and Indian cooking from different groups within the congregation. And, of course there were plenty of yummy cakes on offer too!


I don't think I've ever tried marrow before - although I love almost any squash. This recipe sounds delicious and I love that you took the time to stuff these. Unfortunately, due to the canned tomatoes, this recipe cannot be included as part of Made with Love Mondays (as ingredients from cans are prohibited). Please see the Ingredient Restrictions section of the challenge and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe and I hope you'll have an opportunity to participate in the future.

Aww woopsy daisy I must've missed that one! Sorry about that! Do give marrow a try though, it's one of my favourite vegetables! It's got a delicious creamy-sweetness about it that is quite hard to describe :)
