    1. 1
      Slice the zucchini into diagonal 'coins'.
    2. 2
      Saute zucchini in a single layer in a saute pan with a little bit of oil until they begin to brown, then turn over and brown the other side a little (this is to both heat them and eliminate a little of the moisture in them).
    3. 3
      Mix drained tuna with parsley, olives, green onions, mayonnaise and mustard (you can swap out ingredients here--try pickled red peppers, capers, celery, brown onion, swap out different peppers for greater or lesser heat--whatever you have on hand).
    4. 4
      Arrange zucchini in small piles on a foil lined baking sheet: I used 4-5 pieces per pile and just slightly overlapped their edges.
    5. 5
      Mound tuna onto zucchini bases.
    6. 6
      Cover each tuna-zucchini mound with a few slices of tomato and then sprinkle with cheese.
    7. 7
      Place under a broiler until cheese is melted and beginning to brown.

      This was so good! What a great way to enjoy tuna & zucchini! I used half fat free mayo/half fat free plain yogurt, red onion instead of green, dried parsley & low fat mozzarella (I only used about 1 tbsp-enough for me!). I didn't use any tomato, peppers or onions & tossed the zucchini slices (I used about 8 small slices) with some salt & oregano. What an enjoyable meal! Thank u for sharing this.
