kelsie cooks.

as promised, i attempted a new recipe. these are zucchini parmesan crisps i found here. ryan loved them! 

here's the recipe:

cooking spray
2 medium zucchini (about 1 pound total)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan (3/4-ounce)
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper
preheat the oven to 450 degrees. coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch thick rounds. in a medium bowl, toss the zucchini with the oil. in a small bowl, combine the parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, and a few turns of pepper. dip each round into the parmesan mixture, coating it evenly on both sides, pressing the coating on to stick, and place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
bake the zucchini rounds until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. remove with spatula. serve immediately.

*i added a bit of cayenne pepper to the parmesan mixture, it gave the zucchini a little bit of heat and extra flavor.

we had ours with angel hair pasta and marinara sauce. yum!

hmm, not a fan of Yucchini, but never tried cayenne pepper (which I love) before... Hmm, you might be on to something!
