Baked Zuchinni Sticks

The zuchinni plants have started to produce so I have been in search of good zuchinni recipes. So far we've had traditional zuchinni bread, chocolate zuchinni cake, grilled, sauteed, and tonight it will be stir fried.
This is last night's version of fried zuchinni sticks. I went with a healthier version and baked them in the oven. The flavors were spot on and I don't think it even needs the extra marinara sauce.
This makes enough for about 2 appetizer portions. It is easy to adjust depending on how many people you are serving.

Baked Zuchinni Sticks

1 medium zuchinni cut into 1/2'' sticks
1 T olive oil
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup italian bread crumbs
1 t garlic powder
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1 t oregano

In a medium bowl toss zuchinni with olive oil and then sprinkle on all remaining ingredients except the bread crumbs. Toss gently to coat. Add in breadcrumbs and gently toss again. Spread the sticks out on a baking sheet so they are not touching. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, turn, and bake an additional 5 minutes.

Here you can see a portion of what I harvested yesterday along with the chocolate zuchinni cakes I made earlier.
