  • 1/2  cup  (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1/2  cup  (2 ounces) finely crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 1/4  cup  (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1  tablespoon  chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper

  • Cooking spray
  • 2  cups  thinly sliced plum tomato
  • 1/3  cup  thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4  cup  fresh basil leaves

 

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl.

3. Cut phyllo sheets in half crosswise. Working with 1 phyllo sheet half at a time (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), place phyllo sheet on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Coat phyllo sheet with cooking spray. Repeat with 2 more layers of phyllo. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese mixture. Repeat layers 5 times, ending with 2 phyllo sheets. Coat top phyllo sheet with cooking spray; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese mixture. Pat tomato slices with a paper towel. Arrange tomato slices on top of cheese, leaving a 1-inch border. Sprinkle with onions and the remaining 6 tablespoons cheese mixture. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until golden. Sprinkle with basil leaves.
