What you need:

1 young short thick marrow
1 onion, (chopped)
4 celery sticks, (chopped)
1 garlic clove, (crushed)
2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
a large pinch of sugar
3 tbsp shredded fresh basil
50 g fresh white breadcrumbs
25 g mature Cheddar, finely grated
fresh basil to garnish

What to do:

Preheat oven to 190C/ 375F / Gas 5.

Lightly grease a large ovenproof dish.

Cut the marrow into eight rings, roughly 4cm thick  (two per person)  and take out the seeds. Season the rings lightly with salt and pepper and place them into the greased dish in a single layer.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter then gently cook the onion and celery for about 5 minutes until translucent and soft. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.

Stir in the chopped tomatoes with their juice, add the pinch of sugar . Bring to the boil and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes reducing the mixture until thick. Stir in the shredded basil.

Spoon the tomato mixture to fill  the hollowed-out marrow rings.

Cover the dish tightly with foil to allow the marrow to cook in the steam and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes.

Mix together the breadcrumbs and cheese. Remove the foil and sprinkle this mixture over the tops of the marrow rings. Return to the oven, baking for a further 15 minutes or until the topping is gold and crispy, with the marrow tender and juicy.

Sprinkled the top with fresh basil leaves.

Serve hot.
