Tuna Spinach Braid

1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 9 1/4 ounce can chunk white tuna, water pack, drained and flaked
1 cup low fat ricotta cheese or cream style cottage cheese, drained
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1 8 size package refrigerated crescent rolls
3 thick slices provolone cheese
chopped tomato, optional
grated Parmesan cheese, optional

For filling, stir together spinach, tuna, ricotta or cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese and garlic; set aside. Unroll and separate crescent dough into 4 rectangles. On an ungreased baking sheet or shallow baking pan, place rectangles together overlapping edges slightly, for a 14 x 10 inch rectangle. Firmly press edges and perforations together to seal. Spread filling in a 3 1/2 inch wide strip, lengthwise down the center of dough. Top with provolone, cutting cheese as necessary to cover the filling. Make cuts in dough at 1 inch intervals on both long sides of rectangle just to the edge of the filing. Fold dough strips diagonally over filling, overlapping strips and alternating from side to side to give a braided appearance. Bake in a 375F oven 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. If desired, serve with chopped tomatoes and additional grated Parmesan cheese. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
