Turkey Bolognese Stuffed Marrow

This is a great Autumnal meal to make for the family, it's warming, healthy and nutritious. Stuffed marrow reminds me of growing up at home when my mum would make delicious stuffed marrow with a fresh home grown marrow from the garden.

When I told my husband we were having stuffed marrow for tea, he stuck his nose up but when he tried this recipe he loved it and wants me to make it again.

Turkey Bolognese Stuffed Marrow


1 large marrow
450g turkey mince
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1tsp mixed herbs
1tsp dried crushed chillies
1 carrot, chopped finely
75g frozen sweetcorn 
1 green pepper, chopped finely
1 tin of tomatoes 
1 vegetable stock cube dissolved in 100ml boiling water
100g grated cheese
Olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 6 or 180C.
  2. Fry the turkey mince in a little olive oil until just browning.
  3. Add the onion, garlic, chillies & herbs. 
  4. When the onion is soft add the carrot, pepper and sweet corn and fry for a few minutes.
  5. Add the tomatoes and vegetable stock and simmer until the vegetables are soft and the liquid in the pan has reduced.
  6. Slice the marrow into inch thick slices and cut out the seeds in the middle.
  7. Place onto a baking tray and stuck the Bolognese mix into the centres of the marrow rings. 
  8. Top with grated cheese and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the marrow is tender and the top is golden brown. 

Serve with mashed or roasted potatoes and gravy if you wish.
