25 Min Cook Time


  • Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a pan over medium high heat, then cook cherry tomato halves and half the parsley 3–5 minutes. When cooked, transfer to a plate.
  • Cut zucchini into halves lengthwise. Brush olive oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Place them flesh side down on a lightly oiled cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Cook 3–5 minutes until soft. Turn zucchini halves over and cook 3–5 minutes.
  • Allow zucchini to cool on a plate. With a spoon, scoop out the zucchini to hollow it out. (Optional: Save the zucchini chunks and mix it in with the Truly Simple Beef in the next step.)
  • Prepare Simple Fully Cooked Mediterranean-Style Garlic Herb Beef according to instructions on the package. Drain excess juices. (Optional: Stir in the zucchini chunks with the beef.)
  • Arrange the boats on a serving platter. Fill each boat with stuffing. Garnish with feta cheese, pine nuts, tomatoes, and remaining parsley.
