Scoop out the inside of the marrows and boil for 5/7 minutes until the marrow shell is slightly soft, when ready set aside. In a small pot sweat all vegetables in a little bit of olive oil the celery, garlic, onion, carrots, herbs and the inside of your marrows nicely chopped once softened add the tomato paste cook for a minute or two then add the mince and fry it for a good 5 minutes, splash the red wine reduce to half then add the chicken stock and the tomato polpa and cook for 30 mins at a medium temperature once the mince is cooked put aside and let it rest for 5 minutes. Now fill half the marrows with the potato mash and finish them with the mince and sprinkle the Parmesan on top so you get a crispiness and a little bit of flavour, put them on a baking tray with a little bit of chicken stock or water and cook for another 25 minutes at 180`c.
