Simple. Delicious. Healthy. With just a touch of Parmesan cheese for the Yum-factor!
Each average Zucchini usually yields about 8 sticks, so consider how many total pieces you will want.
Begin by washing the Zucchini thoroughly, and then cutting to yield quarters (or sticks).
Lay the cut pieces out on a parchment lined baking sheet.
In a separate bowl combine:
½ cup of Grated or shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 TSP of Oregano
¼ TSP Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper
Coat each Zucchini Stick with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then sprinkle the Parmesan mixture over each one, turn each over and sprinkle again.
Bake for 10 minutes @350 degrees. Remove from oven. Let sit for a few minutes.
Sprinkle with Parsley, serve and enjoy!
