Small marrows and tomatoes stuffed with tuna

This year for Good Friday I decided to make stuffed artichokes and prepared the filling with the day old bread crumbs,tuna,anchovies,olives,capers,garlic ,parsley ,olive oil,lemon juice,some chili,finely chopped onion and tomato . I stuffed the artichokes and still had a lot of stuffing left over. I decided to stuff the small round marrows and tomatoes.

I added another tin of tuna to the stuffing.

Then cleaned the marrows and tomatoes reserving the tomato juice and pulp I scraped out with a baller scraper.

I filled them with the stuffing.

I then fried some sliced onion in a saucepan until transparent,added a spoonful of tomato paste and the juice and chopped reserved tomato pulp ,added some chopped garlic cloves and some thyme and mint.

I put layers of peeled and sliced potatoes,seasoning each layer.On the top layer I sprinkled some chopped garlic and herbs and poured a cup of water.

Then on top I placed the stuffed marrows and the tomatoes. I drizzled a little olive oil on top . Covered with a lid and simmered until the potatoes and marrows were done.

I served this with the stuffed artichokes.

      Hi Felix ,I usually fill my marrows with minced meat stuffing but seeing I had a lot of stuffing for my ‘deck of cards’ 😉 I decided to try stuff the marrows and tomatoes. Must say my family enjoyed them and asked me to make them again. I love to watch Food Network on tv and visit their web site as well but thank you for your kind suggestion. Best regards Lorraine 🙂
