Recipe: October: Zucchini Parmesan Sticks

It’s time for another recipe! First, the recipe, sourced from; I haven’t topped their recipe, to be honest. Then, me blathering onward about my occasionally questionable culinary capabilities and the memories this particular feast holds for me.

  • The Ingredients
    • 4 fresh zucchini, quartered lengthwise
    • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan
    • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • The Way of Preparing
    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F/175°C.
    2. Coat a metal cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on a baking tray. (This is your roasting setup.)
    3. In a small bowl, combine everything but the zucchini.
    4. In a large bowl, combine the zucchini and olive oil and toss well to coat.
    5. Place the zucchini on your prepared roasting setup.
    6. Sprinkle that delicious seasoned cheese mixture over top of the sliced zucchini.
    7. Bake your seasoned zucchini until fork tender, anywhere from 13-20 minutes depending on the size of your quartered veggies.
    8. Broil for 2-3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.
  • Notes
    • After typing up this recipe, zucchini no longer seems like a real word.
    • The seasoning mix also works well on spaghetti squash.

This is an approximation, as Connie, my first roommate, never actually gave me the recipe. I think she added some other things to it, like extra rosemary? But I’m not entirely sure.

These zucchini sticks were usually served with chicken and devoured heartily.
