Baked zucchini sticks

Do you have too much zucchini laying around with nothing to do with it? A great way to spice up your zucchini into a unique dish is to bake your zucchini into sticks, almost like fries, and then you can dip them into a fresh marinara sauce. How’s that for a fresh take on garden zucchini? It makes a great low fat appetizer to take full advantage of left over zucchini.

This is about how large I cut my zucchini. Nice large sticks so they make a hearty appetizer.

Try to cover most of the zucchini stick with your breadcrumb Parmesan mixture. It might take some coaxing!

Note: You can use any sauce of your choice to dip your zucchini stick into. Go southwest, Italian, or whatever you want. Be creative! I used marinara because I had some on hand and felt in the mood to go the Italian route.
