Zucchini Parmesan (not Squash)

Here is a Low Calorie Recipe that I just loved to make and My family loved to.

Olive Oil Spray
2 large Egg Whites
1 teaspoon fat free Milk
2/3 cup dried bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1/8 teaspoon salt ( i did a pinch)
1 pound Squash, cut crosswise into 1/4 inch circles
1 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, divided
4 oz (about 1 1/4 cups) finely shredded low fat mozzarella
1 Tablespoon grated reduced fat Parmesan

Preheat Oven to 400 F
Mist a large Nonstick baking sheet (or sheets) with spray

Use a fork to lightly beat the egg whites and milk in a medium shallow bowl until well combined.

Combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder, parsley and salt in a second medium shallow bowl and set it next to the first.

Dip one of the Squash slices into the egg mixture, letting any excess drip off. Next, dip the Squash into the bread crumb mixture and lay it on a prepared baking sheet. Continue breading the remaining Squash slices, laying them side by side, not touching, on the baking sheets. Transfer the sheets to the oven rack (back one after the other if they do not fit side by side) and bake for 30 minutes. Carefully flip the slices and bake for another 30 minutes until the Squash is lightly browned and the breading is crip. Remove from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 350 F.

Meanwhile, spread 1/2 cup Spaghetti sauce evenly over the bottom fo teh baking dish. Layer half of the Squash slices on top of the sauce (it's okay if they overlap each other) spoon another 1/2 cup of sauce evenly over squash. follwed by the half of the mozzarella. Layer teh remaining squash slices over teh mozzarella. Followed by another 1/2 cup of sauce and teh remaining mozzarella. Sprinkle the tops evenly with the Parmesan. Bake, uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown slightly. serve immediately.

Saw your comment on Sunday's roll call re: what the Sunday Shout Out is and what you're supposed to do ...

Sunday Shout Outs are chiefly a showcase for those bloggers with giveaways, but since I have yet to host a giveaway on my blog, I never link up with the Mr. Linky they have set up. What I do do is make a comment for roll call, then I go through the comments before me and pick a number of them to visit. I read a post or two, make a pertinent comment regarding said post(s) and finish it up with 'Happy SITS Sunday Shout Out' to let them know I'm comin' from SITS.

Hope this helps! Happy SITS Sunday Shout Out!

P.S. That recipe looks super yummy!

This looks good. I'm making my grocery list now. Thanks for sharing it. Do you have a calorie count for this recipe?

Hi, I'm stopping by from SITS. I just wanted to share a bit of comment love! ♥ To add to S.E. Sward's comment, the Sunday Shout Outs are blogs who have current give-aways. You can go visit them and sign up for any that you are interested in even if you don't have one yourself. Just don't link your blog to the Mr. Linky if you don't have a give-away. Many people get confused by that and link their blog anyway. I think the instructions are definitely confusing. I hope we have helped a little. :0)

I love your recipe and will definitely give it a try. Thanks so much for sharing.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and that the rest of your week is amazing!
