Top-ranked recipe named "Parmesan Zucchini"

Share it:

Swap frying your food in oil and instead turn to the oven! Spectrum High Heat Organic Sunflower Spray Oil can withstand very high temperatures, giving you that crispy, crunchy texture you look for in fried food. These parmesan zucchini sticks are a delicious example of the benefits of oven frying and are especially tasty when dipped in a sauce of roasted red peppers.

"These were delicious. We did not use the sauce but they were still great plain."
