Originally made by Gran (Emily Blundell) but also made by Ruth and Aunty. Each generation has stated that they don’t make it as well as the previous generation but it is one of those recipes that bring back a wealth of memories at the first taste.

1 cup Pecorino or Parmesan grated cheese
2 cups sifted SR flour
3 oz butter or margarine
1 egg
Preheat oven to 200c
Rub butter into flour
Add grated cheese, mixing well
Add well beaten egg then enough milk to make scone dough
Roll out but don't make as high as normal scones, cook 10 minutes or until golden brown (I do them 1 — 1½ cm)
Remove from oven, split in halves, cook again until golden brown — about 10 minutes.
Note These last a long time in airtight container and delicious with butter spread on them
6 large tomatoes
3 medium zucchini
3 large potatoes, peeled and sliced in wedges
2 carrots
½ cup sugar
500g ground beef
½ cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
6 tablespoons uncooked rice
2 tablespoons tomato paste
½ cup tomato Passata sauce
½ cup breadcrumbs
butter or margarine
A pinch of ground nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Slice of the tops of the tomatoes. Using a spoon, carefully scoop out the tomato flesh and reserve in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar.
Scoop out the zucchini and add their flesh to the bowl.
Using a food processor or food mill, process the pulp until you have a chunky liquid. Set aside.
Brown the mince in a large skillet. When all the pink has disappeared, add the olive oil.
Add the onions and saute until translucent.
Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
Add the parsley, rice, half the tomato pulp puree, tomato paste, and tomato sauce.
Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
Allow the sauce to simmer and reduce a bit so that it is not too runny. The uncooked rice will begin to absorb the excess liquid as it cooks.
Drizzle some olive oil in the bottom of a rectangular pan.
Assemble the vegetables in the pan and use the potato wedges to keep the vegetables upright.
I also like to put in some carrots because they sweeten the sauce as they roast.
Stuff the tomatoes and zucchini about 3/4 full and sprinkle the tops with breadcrumbs.
Place butter or margarine on each top.
Pour the remaining pulp puree in the bottom of the pan and season the vegetables with salt and pepper.
Bake for about an hour or until the vegetables have become tender and cooked through.
You can lower the heat to 135°C and let the vegetables slow roast for a few hours.
The flavors develop as the vegetables sit so they can be enjoyed even more as leftovers the next day.
