I don’t know how well it would do — cougettes (summer squash to us) contain a lot more water. You would definitely need to salt them for a while first.

They also have a less assertive flavor, and I wonder if the anchovies, raisins, celery, tomatoes, and all might not over-power them. But worth a try.

I also posted a recipe for stuffed eggplant; that definitely works with courgettes as well. Most Turkish cookbooks first list all the fillings, then all the things to stuff, and eggplants and squash are both recommended.

Are golden raisins what we call sultanas?
I think so. These are very large yellow raisins and my impression is that sultanas are small and perhaps more golden than yellow. But any should work.

Just a thought but would it be possible to have a print style sheet that gave a 1-inch left margin so the printed pages could be hole punched for a ring binder. I know you like style sheet challenges.
I mean to make a print css file, but haven’t gotten to it. Maybe later this week if no surprises get in my way. In the meantime I suggest you copy the recipe and paste it into a text editor, and then print. Skips the color background, etc., and lets you have any margin you know how to set.
