Fon-Tuna Melts

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by happynana

This recipe is from Rachel Ray's web site. A nice change from the mayo type tuna salad. I fixed it for lunch today and used whole pita bread instead of Italian bread. It was sort of like a mini tuna pizza. I also used Italian blend cheese since I did not have any fontina cheese on hand. Enjoy.

Very very good. Really filling also. I couldn't find Fontina Cheese at my supermarket so I just used Provolone. Made for Recipe Swap #34
