2 onions 


1 bunch of fresh basil 


olive oil 

fresh grated parmesan cheese 

salt, pepper 

1 can of tuna 

2 eggs 

4 zucchini

Boil zucchini in salt water for eight minutes, allow to cool and cut in half. Remove the pulp with a teaspoon and put aside. Heat oil in a pan and fry the anchovy fillet. Add the onions and the pulp of the zucchini and fry e few more minutes. Meanwhile, mix the tuna, herbs and capers in a food processor. Now place the fillings into a large bowl and mix well with the eggs, breadcrumbs and cheese, then use a spoon to fill the zucchini halves and drip a little olive oil on them. Bake these in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for about 30 minutes.
