Number of Servings: 4


    8 Slices of Toasted Whole Wheat Bread
    1 can of very low sodium tuna
    1 cup of no salt added cooked mushrooms
    1T. reduced fat margarine
    2T. flour (I used soy)
    1/2 cup skim milk
    24 steamed fresh (or frozen) asparagus spears
    8 slices of reduced fat sliced cheese, pref american or cheddar


Makes 4, 2 slice servings

Melt the margarine over low heat and slowly whisk in the flour. Slowly whisk in the milk until completely combined with the flour mixture. Heat over low to medium heat until thickened. Add the mushrooms and tuna, heat through.

Place the toast on a lined or sprayed baking sheet. Spoon enough tuna sauce to cover the toast, layer 3 asparagus spears over this and top with a slice of cheese. Broil until the cheese melts.

I sometimes add light salt and pepper to the sauce b/c of the reduced sodium.

This is a wonderful, easy recipe that tastes delicious and is much healthier than the all-canned original made w/cream of mushroom soup.
