Lightened Up Tuna Melt

I love a good tuna melt, but they can tend to be a massive amount of calories and a lot of WW points.

It’s was super simple to put together and your typical tuna melt at a restaurant can run you a large 32 WW points from Friendly’s and 891 calories.

My lightened version is only 7 WW points and only 257 calories.
