1. Cut a slice from each end of the marrow, about 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick. Slice the marrow in half horizontally and scoop out all the centre seeds.
2. Fry the onion and garlic gently in the olive oil for 4-5 minutes; mix with the remaining ingredients, to make a firm stuffing.
3. Pack the stuffing tightly into the marrow halves and wrap each half securely in foil.
4. Bake in a preheated oven for about 45 minutes-1 hour until the marrow is tender.
5. Serve hot, cut into thick slices, accompanied by low calorie mayonnaise if liked.
