    1                    Whole-wheat or plain pita
    1       oz           Sliced, reduced-fat cheese
                         -(Jarisberg, Monterey Jack,
                         -Cheddar or mozzarella)
    3       sl           Tomato, paper-thin
      1/3   c            Alfalfa sprouts
    4       sl           Dill pickle, paper-thin

                         Vegetable-oil cooking spray
 
   Cut a thin strip from one side of the pita. Carefully open the pita to
   make a pocket for the filling.
   
   Place one slice of cheese in the pita pocket. Slide in the tomates;
   add the alfalfa sprouts and top with the pickle slices and pepper
   rings. Then add the remaining cheese slice.
   
   Heat a medium (8-10") skillet over medium-high heat until hot enough
   to evaporate a drop of water upon contact. Spray with a vegetable-oil
   cooking spray. Add the sandwich; cook, covered, over medium-low;
   heat, turning once, until browned on both sides, about 10 minutes.
