  • 8 asparagus spears
  • 4 english muffins, split in half
  • 1 tbsp. diet tub-style margarine
  • 8 thin tomato slices
  • 2 tsp. mustard
  • 8 thin slices part-skim mozzarella cheese

    2. Step 2Spread the muffin halves with a thin layer of the margarine. Place on a cookie sheet and toast lightly under a broiler.
    3. Step 3Place a tomato slice on each half and lightly coat with the mustard. Place under the broiler for 1 minute to heat through. Arrange 2 asparagus spears on each tomato slice. Cover with the mozzarella and place under a broiler until the cheese melts. Serve at once.
