Poor man's ratatouille


1 kilo marrow (skinned and de-seeded) or overblown courgettes
500 g onions
1 kilo tomatoes or 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
5 cloves garlic
1 red pepper (optional)
2 tbsps tomato paste or puree (optional)
Herbs - bay leaf, thyme, marjoram, rosemary
Black pepper & salt to taste
1 tbsp vegetable oil


Skin and de-seed the marrow and chop into 2cm cubes (very rough guide)
Peel and chop the onions - roughly the same size as the marrow cubes.
Chop the tomatoes if using - or open the tins!
Peel and chop the garlic.
Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy pan or oven-ready casserole that can go into the oven.
Add the garlic and marrow and cook for 20mins,
Add the onions and cook till onions starting to soften.
Add everything else.
Put a lid on the pan and either cook slowly on the hob or in a medium oven for an hour.


Serve hot with sausages, pork, cheese-on-toast or whatever you fancy.
Freezes well.
