Yield: 4 servings
Source: Cooking Light Website
Comments: Here's a great way to use up that bumper crop of zucchini in the summer. Makes a unique side dish for grilled chicken or burgers. (I also added 1/8 tsp. of garlic powder to the breadcrumb mixture.)

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups thinly sliced zucchini (about 1 pound)
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
Cooking spray

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine first 3 ingredients; stir well.
  3. Dip the zucchini slices in egg whites; dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Place zucchini in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn zucchini over; bake an additional 15 minutes or until outside is crispy and browned.
