Creamy Tuna Melt

2 large ribs of celery, diced
1 small onion, chopped
cooking oil spray
1 large can (12 oz) white tuna packed in water
1 1/2 cups low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 tbs lemon juice from frozen concentrate
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3 english muffins
1 cup (4 oz) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Place the broiler rack in the position nearest the heating element and turn on the broiler.

Dice the celery, peel and chop the onion. Spray a 12 inch nonstick skillet with the cooking oil spray and place it over medium heat. Add the celery and onion and cook until the onion is tender, about 2 minutes.

Drain the tuna and add it to the skillet along with the cottage cheese, maynnaise, lemon juice, and garlic powder. Stir well to combine and break up the tuna chunks. Cook just long enough to warm the ingredients, 2-3 mintues, stirring frequently. Remove th epan from the heat and set aside.

Spray a 13x9 inch glass baking dish with cooking oil spray. Split the english muffins in half and place the halves, split side up, side by side inthe baking dish. Spread the tuna mixture evenly over the muffins and sprinkle with the cheese. Broil until the cheese melts, 2-3 mintues. Serve

Makes 6 servings
