  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.
