1/2 cup bottled salsa
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
2 zucchini (about 3/4 pound)
2/3 cup italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons grated fresh parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 large egg whites, lightly beaten
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine salsa and sour cream; set aside.

Cut each zucchini lengthwise into quarters; cut each quarter crosswise into 3 pieces.

Combine the breadcrumbs and the next 4 ingredients (breadcrumbs through salt) in a shallow dish. Dredge 6 zucchini pieces in flour. Dip in egg whites, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Repeat procedure with the remaining zucchini, flour, egg whites, and breadcrumb mixture. Place the

zucchini on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat the zucchini with cooking spray. Bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp, carefully turning after 12 minutes. Serve zucchini immediately with salsa dip.

*Note: You can also serve the sticks with a spicy marinara rather than salsa...because I always have an open jar in the fridge that needs to be used up. But the salsa dip is good too.*
