Simply Inspired Tuna Zucchini Melt

By Stephanie E - Jenny Craig

Healthy Recipe

Swap bread for delicious baked zucchini in this veggie-packed take on a savory tuna melt. All you’ll need are three ingredients: a Jenny Craig Tuna Dill Salad Kit, zucchini and paprika. For a lower-carb take on this dish, omit the crackers. Bake a batch for lunch or dinner and pair it with a fresh salad. Done and done!

If you're following the Jenny Craig program, check with your consultant before making any swaps or changes to your plan to ensure you stay on track!
