This is a nice way to use up that zucchini from the garden! This side-dish is a great accompaniment to almost any meal. I served it with "Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets" and a salad.
Serves 8 ( 3 points + )
- 3 zucchini ( about 1-½ lbs)
- 1 c. dry bread crumbs
- ½ c. Panko bread crumbs
- ¼ c. Parmesan cheese, grated
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- ½ c. egg beaters
- marinara sauce for dipping
Cut each zucchini in half cross-wise. Cut each half length-wise and then each of those halves into 8 wedges so that you end up with 48 zucchini sticks, total.
Place bread crumbs, Panko, Parmesan and pepper in a bowl. Place egg beaters in another bowl.
Dip zucchini sticks into egg beaters and then coat in bread crumb mixture. Discard any leftover bread crumb mixture. Place zucchini sticks on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spray zucchini sticks with cooking spray as well. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden. Serve with marinara.
