Zucchini – Baked
by James Belardo

I have a confession, as a youth I my appreciation of zucchini was restricted to the marvelous blossoms, the fried fritters my grandmother made. As an adult my palette opened and I can finally appreciate this healthy and versatile vegetable.

4-6 Zucchini, quartered lengthwize
olive oil
Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs (try our recipe)
Pecorino Romano Cheese
Fresh flat-leaf Parsley – garnish


1. Preheat oven to 400F. Cut zucchini in into quarters, lengthwise to make wedges.
