Marrow, Manchego Cheese, White Beans and Sage Pithivier

I made this Marrow, Manchego Cheese, White Beans and Sage Pithivier with some of the marrow that was left over from the Marrow Conserve recipe (featured in the photograph) next to the jars.

I have to admit, I was not overly impressed with the filling whilst I was making it.  It looked a bit simple and boring.  I was also unsure what cheese to use and still had some remnants of Manchego cheese left over from Griddled Summer Vegetable Tart with Manchego Cheese Tart and added that to the mixture when it had cooled down. The puff pastry was filled, folded into pasties and then baked to taken into work the following day for lunch. 
Well surprising  these Marrow, Manchego Cheese, White Beans and Sage Pasties were delicious.  I have to concur with my husband that I too also enjoyed it. 

The following day, I  used the last of the filling to make some into pithivier style, but you can also just top puff pastry sliced like a flat tart or pizza.

If you don't have marrows, or don't want to use them then use courgettes after all overgrown marrows.

  1. funnily enough someone the other day on my FB timeline was asking people for recipe ideas for marrow (I have just send this recipe her way now!). How lovey to see a creative way if using up marrows. it looks and sounds delicious . thank you for linking to #BakeoftheWeek x

    1. Thanks Jenny - this week has been all about the marrow.

  2. sounds really delicious to me - I wish I had such interesting lunches - often it is just rolls with cheese and chutney.

    1. Thanks Johanna, our work lunches are not always this good - its often pasta salad or sandwiches, this was a change. Sometimes a simple roll with cheese and chutney is welcome, I am hoping to make some of them soon with homemade chutney from last year which has to be used.

  3. That's a lovely way to use marrow and I am a big fan of Manchego. Love the fact that you have wrapped the whole lot in a pithivier..... Yum!

    1. Thanks Kate. I have one more marrow left which I want to enjoy with goats cheese.
