I just found these round courgettes in my local supermarket the other day. You do not find them so easily where I live. I was really exited about finding this round courgette and came back straightaway in my kitchen to bake this delicious recipe.
Stuffed round courgettes à la provencale
- 8 round courgettes

- Bring to a boil a casserole of water to blanch the courgettes. Slice the 2 onions and garlic clove. Then brown in a pan with some olive oil. Add the hacked meat, the diced celery branch and sliced tomatoes.
