I'm sure that some people think so. Probably chopping onions, peeling potatoes, deveining shrimp is considered tedious to some people, too. I guess you could say that about many aspects of food preparation.
Others -- like me -- think it's fun.
Stuffed tomatoes need to be empty to be stuffed with yumminess. IMO it's not a bother at all, since it is a very east task, technique-wise.
Edited to add that I marinated for about 2 hours in the fridge.
