    Serves: 6 

    • 3 zucchini, ends trimmed
    • 2 (185g) tins tuna, drained and flaked
    • 1/4 onion, grated
    • 1 tomato, finely chopped
    • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    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 1cm shell. Set aside the scooped out flesh in a bowl.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a 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.

    Tried making it with 1 large zucchini. To anyone that does that in the future...skin the zucchini before stuffing and baking it! Once the skin was off, it was delicious!  -  04 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
