You can make Parmesan and Herb Baked Squash using tender yellow summer squash or zucchini.

Experiment with different herbs and adjusting the amounts to taste. Substitute Romano cheese, or use a combination of Romano and parmesan.

The best flavor is achieved by using the best parmesan- parmigiano-geggiano. A little does a long way.

Most of the calories and all of the fat comes from the cheese and oil, but this recipe has a fraction the calories of deep fried zucchini and other restaurant appetizers.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with Low Fat Ranch Dressing
