Dice the pieces removed from zucchini. In a heated pan sautee all of the vegetables for about 2-3 minutes then add then add the ground beef. Add the Oregano and season with salt and pepper. Cook and break down the beef for about 3-4 minutes.Add the marinara and basil then cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the pan and transfer into a bowl.

Drizzle the zucchini “boats” with Olive oil and season with salt. Fill the zucchini with the stuffing and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Place the feta cubes (3-4 per zucchini) and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until the top is browning and  zucchini is tender. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Serve over Couscous.
