Baked Zucchini sticks

We tried these as a side with dinner, but these would be great, just as a snack!

2-4 medium zucchini
2 eggs
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of dried basil
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with tinfoil - spray with cooking spray
. Cut the zucchini into half lengthwise then into thick spears.
Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and seasonings then mix thoroughly.
Dip the spears into egg then bread crumbs and Parmesan mixture, making sure to coat evenly. Place on baking sheet and spray the top of each spear with cooking spray.
Bake for 10-15 minutes then turn over and cook another 10-15 until golden brown.
Serve with marinara sauce or better yet, lite Creamy Caesar dressing. Enjoy!
