Globe Marrow Bolognese

1 Globe marrow serves two people, a stuffed marrow can often make a great alternative to pasta or spaghetti…


250g Minced beef

200g Chopped Tomatoes

1 Onion, diced

1 Carrot, diced or grated

4-5 button mushrooms 

Sprinkle of mixed herbs

1 Oxo cube 

1 Bay leaf

1 Globe marrow 

Handful of cheese (any kind, depending on your preference) 

Splash of olive oil



1. First cut the globe marrow in 2 and hollow out the seeds, you can either dry these out in the greenhouse or through them away, then pre-heat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4.

2. To make the bolognese, start frying off the onion, carrot, mushrooms with the olive oil on a medium heat until they’re soft and then add the beef, fry this off until all of the pink has gone.

3. Add the chopped tomatoes, herbs, bay leaf, Oxo cube and anything else you’d think would add to the bolognese mixture.  I think every household has their own preferred method of making a bolognese sauce, just go with what works for you.  Simmer for around 10mins.

4. Pour the bolognese into the globe marrows and top off with a generous handful of cheese, bake in the oven for around 15 to 20 mins or until golden brown.

Serve with a salad and enjoy!
