Crispy Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

I ventured to turn on my oven over the weekend after having been on an oven strike most of the summer. I am very happy I did! I love zucchini & think of these as zucchini fries... To me, it seemed like I was eating mozzarella sticks made of veggies. Crispy outside & gooey inside, give them a try! Your non-veggie eater may surprise you & love them.
