  1. Fill a large pot with salted water, place the zucchini into the pot, and boil over medium heat for about 5 minutes to soften. Remove the zucchini, slice in half the long way, and allow to cool. Scoop out the flesh from the zucchini halves, leaving a 1/2-inch shell. Set aside the scooped out flesh in a bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x12-inch baking dish.
  3. Place the zucchini flesh into a bowl, and mash well. Mix in the tuna, onion, tomato, bread crumbs, egg, salt, and black pepper. Lightly stuff the zucchini shells with the tuna mixture. Drizzle about 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil over each stuffed zucchini half.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are slightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

This was pretty tasty & easy. I pureed the zucchini flesh in a food processor -- easier than mashing I think. Also, I used quinoa instead of flour, then added a little almond flour because the f...

Was Surprisingly quick and easy, baking took the longest and i has it all cleaned up before i even put it in. And Tuna and zuchini definatly tasted alot better than i thought it would woohoo!

We liked this -- quick and easy with a "comfort food" feel. I added 1 tsp chili powder for flavor.

Meh. The whole thing sounded bland, so in addition to the optional tomato, I added 1 big clove garlic, a few dashes each of parsley, marjoram, and Tabasco. I pulsed everything in the food pr...

I did not like this recipe at all. Oh well.

I followed the recipe and even added a few "improvements" like other reviewers. Two cloves of chopped garlic, 2 teaspoons of chili powder, a heavy seasoning of salt and pepper with a parmesan/mo...

This was both healthy and filling but as others had said, lacked any substantial flavor. I added plenty of salt and pepper, topped it with panko and Parmesan, even then my wife said this recipe ...
