Baked Parmesan Zucchini

IMG_2174Crisp, tender zucchini sticks oven-roasted to perfection. It’s healthy, nutritious and completely addictive!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 zucchini, quartered lengthwise (as you can tell I cut the zucchini n slices)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a cooling rack with non-stick spray and place on a baking sheet; set aside.  (I put olive oil in a glass baking casserole, then added the breaded zucchini and mixed it all up with the olive oil, adding a little more olive oil on top.)
  2. In a small bowl, combine Parmesan, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Place zucchini onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan mixture. Place into oven and bake until tender, about 15 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

Note:  These were soooo good that I at them all in one serving.  (I halved the recipe because I only had 2 zucchinis.
