Heart Healthy Monday

Heart Healthy Web site - Beating Heart Disease Together

Heart Healthy Tip: Use only 5-8 teaspoons of fat a day. (that INCLUDES fat used in cooking and what is put in salads)

Artichoke-Tomato Pitas (from Healthy Heart One-Dish Meals)
(4 servings)
4 8" pita bread rounds
1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and sliced
2 cups seeded and chopped plum tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced fresh basil
1/4 cup fat-free ranch dressing
1 cup (4 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Place the pita bread on a large baking sheet.  Place one-fourth of each of the artichoke hearts, basil, tomato, and dressing down the center of each pita.  Broil 3 inches from heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese melts.  Remove from oven and roll up.  Wrap the bottom of each pital roll in waxed paper or decorative tissue paper and serve.
