Season the mixture with salt, pepper and thyme, add a little water so that the ingredients do not stick to the walls of the pot, then leave the mixture to cool.

When it is cold, add 2 small eggs or one large one and mix the composition.

With this mixture we fill the potato carcasses.

For the sauce, heat the oil with two cloves of crushed garlic and a few broken basil leaves, then add the tomato paste, mix a few times and top with boiled water.

Let the sauce boil for 10 minutes, during which time we season it with spices, then add the stuffed potatoes, but also the surplus stuffing that did not fit in them, as well as the potato pulp hollowed and chopped into cubes.

Add a sprig of rosemary in the middle and put the dish in the oven for 15 minutes, and 5 minutes before turning off the heat, sprinkle over the potatoes, grated mozzarella.
