Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce (or 1 batch of sauce from this recipe)
  1. Prepare the zucchini: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Slice each zucchini in half. Then, cut each half into 3 long strips, yielding 12 strips total.
  2. Prepare the breading: On a plate or in a shallow dish, stir together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Crack 2 eggs into a dish and whisk.
  3. Bread the zucchini: Dip each zucchini piece into the egg mixture and then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Place each breaded zucchini piece on a lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake the zucchini: Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Then, flip the pieces over and bake for another 4-6 minutes. The zucchini is finished when it’s crispy and golden brown.
  5. Serve: Serve the zucchini pieces over spaghetti noodles, zucchini noodles, or your favorite pasta. Top with marinara sauce.
Nutrition information is for the zucchini only.
If there are leftovers, I don’t recommend reheating the zucchini in the microwave because the breading will be mushy. Place the zucchini on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes until the breading is crispy again.
