  • Preheat the grill.

  • Set aside 1/2 cup of the couscous and 1 tablespoon couscous mix seasoning. Store the remaining couscous and seasoning.

  • Coat a disposable foil pan with a thin layer of cooking spray.

  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a medium skillet, and heat over medium heat. Add onion and saut� until softened (about 3 minutes).

  • While the onion cooks, cut 1/4 inch slices from the top of each tomato, and discard the slices.

  • Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh of the tomato and reserve the flesh in a bowl. Set aside the 1/4-inch thick tomato shells and tomato flesh. Place tomato shells on foil pan, such that the opening faces up.

  • Chop tomato flesh and stir into skillet. Add the beans, parsley, Italian seasoning, pepper, couscous, and seasoning. Stir well to combine.

  • Using a spoon, fill tomato shells with the stuffing from the skillet. Fill slightly above the top of the tomato shell. Scatter the remaining stuffing around the base of the foil pan.

  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil around the foil pan. Cover the foil pan with aluminum foil and, avoiding direct heat, place on grill.

  • Grill for until stuffing browns and tomatoes are soft (about 45 minutes), rotating every 5 minutes or so, to avoid uneven cooking.

  • Once cooked, remove the tomatoes from the grill and let them cool for 20 minutes before serving.
