Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

This is a great recipe especially if you like zucchini. For the zucchini haters in my house the recipe was not high on their list as expected. The mistake I made with this recipe was not using shredded parmesan cheese but rather using the Kraft parmesan in a jar. Yes big mistake! I have no doubt that would have been a huge improvement.

The group parmesan cheese ended up tasting a bit grainy and dry whereas the shredded would have actually melted. Although this recipe actually didn’t turn out it was very good and is something I would make again in the future.


  • 8 medium zucchini, sliced in half
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 tbsp. dried thyme or oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange zucchini halves on 2 rimmed baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix to combine Parmesan cheese, oregano (thyme), salt and black pepper. 
  3. Top each zucchini slice with 1 – 1.5 tbsp. of cheese-herb mixture spreading evenly. 
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. 
  5. Then broil on High for 4 – 5 minutes or until cheese turns crispy and golden. Serve warm or cold.
