3 onions (finely
3/4 kg Mince

Salt & pepper

Optional: A little chilli to spice it
Cook the Onions, mince, tomatoes, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Then add
the shredded marrow and cook to form the sauce. It is necessary to cook the sauce down so there is not too much liquid. We generally assist to
achieve this by dipping bread in the sauce which reduces the liquid whilst giving us a tasty treat.
Add 2 beaten eggs to sauce and stir through.
In a baking dish lay out thick sliced potatoes, then sit the marrow shells on top. Half fill the shells with sauce mix then beaten egg and parmesan
cheese. Fill remainder of shells with the mix then beaten egg then place breadcrumbs on top. Season to taste and add a little water. Bake in oven till
cooked (browned on top).
Note: Marrows may be halved lengthwise (boat shape) or widthwise (cup shape )
