  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 100g breadcrumb
  • 100g mature cheddar, grated
  • 25g finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 175g Cumberland pork chipolata, squeezed from their skins
  • salad, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the flesh from the courgettes, then roughly chop.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 6-8 mins until soft. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 min more. Add the chopped courgette and cook for a further 6 mins until really tender.

  3. Remove from the heat and tip into a bowl along with the breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley and the sausagemeat. Mix together well.

  4. Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out courgette halves and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 mins – cover towards the end if browning – until the courgettes are tender and the filling is golden. Serve with a salad, if you like.

I really enjoyed this recipe, I used flavoured normal sized sausages and I large courgette cut in half and stuffed, it was so tasty. There was enough for two of us for 2 days.

An incredibly easy meal. I have made with medium sized and large courgettes; both worked well.

Easy to prepare and tastes great. Used thick Cumberland sausages because thats what I usually buy and have in the freezer.

140 grams of sausage doesn't seem that much (3 little Chipolatas) and did you really mean 4 large Courgettes, ive had cook books before that have used completely wrong amounts lol
