1 lean meat, 1 starch
1 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped green onions, chives, or red onion
3/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crumbled
1/8 teaspoon pepper (freshly ground preferred)
4 slices whole-grain or whole-wheat bread (lowest sodium available), toasted
2 to 3 medium tomatoes, thickly sliced
In a small bowl, using a spoon or spatula, stir together the ricotta cheese, green onions, Italian seasoning, and pepper.
Spread 1/4 cup of the ricotta mixture over each slice of toast. Top with the tomato slices.
Tip: Prefer to turn this toast into a hot open-face sandwich for lunch? Simply place the toast on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and pop it under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the ricotta cheese is melted.
