  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Slice zucchinis in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and seeds, leaving ~1/4 inch thick edges. Save the zucchini flesh.
  3. Place zucchini halves skin side down in a large baking dish. Drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil and a shake of salt and pepper. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until zucchini is fork tender.
  4. While zucchini bakes, prepare the filling. Add remaining 1 tbsp olive oil to a frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Add onion plus a shake of salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes until onion is translucent.
  6. Add garlic and Italian seasoning. Stir and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  7. Stir in tomatoes and reserved zucchini flesh. Reduce heat a little, and cook until tomatoes are cooked down, about 10 minutes.
  8. Transfer mixture to a bowl, then stir in white beans, tuna, and feta cheese. 
  9. Remove zucchini from oven. Spoon filling into each zucchini half. Enjoy immediately.
