1. Preheat oven to 350°F. On nonstick baking sheet set potato halves cut-side down and bake until tender but not soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
2. Scoop pulp from each potato half into work bowl of food processor, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shell; reserve shells. Add tuna to potato pulp and, using an on-off motion, process until finely ground (do not puree); set aside.
3. In small nonstick skillet heat margarine until bubbly and hot; add onion and saute for about 1 minute. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon flour and stir quickly to combine; cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat.
4. In small bowl stir yogurt until creamy; stir in remaining teaspoon flour. Stir 2 tablespoons onion mixture into yogurt mixture, then add yogurt mixture to skillet and stir to combine. Add 1 ounce cheese and the pimiento, salt, pepper, paprika, and reserved tuna mixture to yogurt mixture and combine thoroughly.
5. Spoon half of tuna mixture into each reserved potato shell, mounding mixture; sprinkle each stuffed half with 1/2 ounce cheese and set on baking sheet. Bake at 350°F. until cheese is melted and potato is thoroughly heated, 10 to 15 minutes.
