Preheat the oven 200ºC.

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the leeks and garlic until glossy. Add the baby marrow and fry until tender. Season with salt and pepper and allow to cool.

Roll out the puff pastry and roughly line a pie dish with it (you may have to roll the pastry a bit thinner, depending on the size of the dish) – it can hang over the edge. Prick the base and bake for 15 minutes until the pastry starts to colour.

Mix the baby marrow mixture with the rest of the ingredients and spoon it into the pastry case. Bake for about 30-35 minutes until cooked.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
