Ingredients

2 medium zucchini (about 7 ounces each)
Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 (1-ounce) slices multigrain bread, toasted
1 (9-ounce) can solid white tuna in water, drained
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
16 (1/4-inch-thick) slices plum tomato
4 (3/4-ounce) slices 1/3-less-fat Swiss or fat-free American cheese

Preparation

Slice zucchini in half crosswise; then slice into 1/4-inch lengthwise slices.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of the zucchini; cook 5 minutes. Turn slices over, sprinkle with half of the herbs and pepper; cook 5 minutes or until tender. Repeat with remaining zucchini, herbs, and pepper. Divide zucchini slices evenly among toast slices.

Combine tuna, mayonnaise, and onion in a small bowl, stir well. Spread 1/2 cup tuna mixture over each zucchini-topped bread slice; top each with 4 tomato slices and 1 cheese slice.

Place sandwiches on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
