Ingredients

  • 150g Saint Agur Blue Cheese

Method

  1. Boil the conchiglioni for 3 to 4 min. in a large saucepan of salt water. Drain and then cool under cold water. Coat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil to prevent them from sticking together.

  3. In a separate container, mix the minced veal with the softened onion and garlic, the chopped herbs, half of the Saint Agur cut into small pieces, salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C, thermostat 6.
  5. Fill the conchiglioni with the meat-herb mixture.
  6. Add a little water to the tomato coulis to dilute it slightly.
  7. Place conchiglioni in a large oven dish, pour the tomato coulis all around and then sprinkle with the rest of the Saint Agur, crumbled into pieces.
  8. Bake the conchiglioni for 30 min. in the oven. Enjoy while fresh from the oven.
