Courgettes stuffed with Rice and Vegetables
Ingredients (4 people)
  • 50 g of Nano Vialone Veronese IGP Rice
  • 4 average size courgettes
  • 1 pepper
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5 spoonfuls extra virgin olive oil,
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Wash the courgettes and cut off the ends; blanch them in salted water for 5 minutes. Drain and leave to cool; then cut them in half lengthwise and remove pulp delicately. Boil the rice in salted water, drain and transfer to a bowl, rinse and clean the pepper, dice and toss in a pan with crushed garlic, 3 spoonfuls oil, the chopped pulp of the courgetts and the peeled and chopped tomatoes. Cover the sauce with chopped parsley; season with salt and pepper and cook for about ten minutes on a moderate heat. When cooked, pour the vegetables into the container with the rice; add a handful of grated Parmesan cheese and mix carefully. Stuff the courgettes with the prepared mixture and lay them in a buttered oven dish. Sprinkle with the remaining oil and cook in the oven for 10 minutes at 200°C.
