    It was "munchie night" at our house last night, so whatever is in the frig or freezer is what we have. I had plenty of zukes so I made your recipe, I'll admit however I deep fried mine *LOL Needless to say they weren't as healthy as you recipe (I'd change the name to Lite Breaded Zucinni Fingers" since they are so much better for you than deep fired)! Anyway, they were wonderful, I didn't have any marinara so I served Ranch dressing and I personally just love them with salt! I will be trying these in the oven next time however as I think they will come out with more breading and cripser then when I deep fry! Thanks again!

    I love zucchini! MIL generously gave me the first harvest of zucchini this year and the first recipe I went to to prepare them. Good stuff. I used 2 eggs and full fat Parmesan. Sprayed the top with some cooking oil too. I didn't serve them with the marinara, I love them "as is". These made a great snack today. Thanks for posting. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.

    Delicious! The zucchini had a fantastic flavor and we loved them dipped in the marinara sauce. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travelers during ZWT 4.
