Recipe Ingredients for Parmesan Zucchini

2 cups zucchini squash, sliced
1 egg white
2 tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese, lowfat
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 Salt to taste

Recipe Directions for Parmesan Zucchini

  1. Slice zucchini squash into 3/4 to 1 inch slices

  2. Drop 1 egg white in a zippered baggie

  3. Add slice zucchini and shake until evenly coated.

  4. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup lowfat grated Parmesan cheese (the kind that comes in a canister with a shaker)

  5. Heat pan that has been sprayed with Olive Oil non-stick spray. Add 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil to pan if you still have your fat to use, if not you can cook using just the spray, but it won't cook as crispy.

  6. Cook zucchini on both sides, browning to a golden color and cooking until squash is tender.

  7. Sprinkle with Garlic salt or table salt lightly as it cooks. Be careful not to salt too much, though, because the cheese is salty!

  8. (I used a generic store brand grated Parmesan cheese that was 20 calories per tablespoon and 1.5 grams of fat. Could not find fat-free parmesan.)
