  • Step 1

    First up, we make the Bolognese! Dice the Onion and Carrot and place them in your Ninja Foodi with some Olive Oil. Set it to sauté on a medium heat and cook until soft

  • Step 2

    Reduce the heat to a Medium/Low (you don’t want to burn the Garlic) and crush your two Garlic Cloves into the dish. Gently simmer until fragrant

  • Step 3

    Add in the Chopped Tomatoes, the Marmite and the Oregano. Increase the heat back to Medium

  • Step 4

    Tip in the Frozen Quorn Mince and stir while it cooks. This will soak in the sauce as it defrosts so once it starts to thicken, add in the stock

  • Step 5

    Reduce the temperature and leave the Bolognese to simmer for 10 minutes

  • Step 6

    Stir in your Basil Leaves so that they wilt and remove your Bolognese from the heat

  • Step 7

    Safely remove your dish and rinse, you’ll need to pop this back into the Ninja once it’s clean and dry!

  • Step 8

    Next we make the boats! Cut the Courgette in half lengthways

  • Step 9

    Scoop out the seeds so that they make little boat shapes (tip: I always save these as they are great to thicken soups and sauces)

  • Step 10

    Set your Ninja to the roast setting and place the Courgette boats in at 170°C for 15 minutes. Depending on the size of your Courgettes, you may need to use the rack

  • Step 11

    Once these are cooked, carefully spoon in the Bolognese and top with Bechamel

  • Step 12

    Top with Grated Mozzarella and set your Ninja Foodi to air crisp at 200°C for 5 minutes

  • Step 13

    Remove your Courgette boats from the Foodi. Serve with Shredded Basil Leaves and Cracked Black Pepper
