Courgettes Stuffed With Mince

Courgettes Stuffed With Mince
serves 4

8 medium courgettes
450g/1lb minced beef
1 egg
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
4 tablespoons fresh breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons water

• Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F/Gas mark 4.
• Cut each of the courgettes in half lengthways. Using a sharp knife or teaspoon, scoop out the courgette flesh to make shells, taking care not to pierce the skin.
• Mix together all the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into the courgette halves and rejoin each half to another to form whole courgettes again.
• Put the filled courgettes in a lightly oiled baking dish, and roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
