2 Medium Zucchini (about one pound total)
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
1/4 Cup of Freshly Grated Parmesan (about 3/4 ounce)
1/4 Cup of Plain Dry Bread Crumbs
1/8 Teaspoon of Salt
Ground Black Pepper for taste

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees farenheit. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray beforehand. Slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch think rounds. In a medium bowl, toss the zucchini with the oil. In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, and a few turns of pepper. Dip each round into the Parmesan mixture, coating it evenly on both sides, pressing the coating on to stick, and place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake the zucchini rounds until browned and crip, normally 25 to 30 minutes. Remove with a spatula. Serve immediately and enjoy! If you want to see more, then go to Food Network
