Mozzarella Tuna Melts

While the soup simmers, Jo assembles tasty Mozzarella Tuna Melts. "Our daughter's home economics teacher shared the recipe for these all-American favorites," she notes. Using a mini food processor to chop the celery and onion for the filling helps shave preparation time. Then Jo just pops the sandwiches in the oven.
