Baked Zucchini

This Baked Zucchini recipe is a great side dish if you decide to have fish or chicken for dinner.

This recipe is a good one to try if you are doing the 7 Day-Junk Foods to Super Foods Challenge because it mixes up quickly and is nice and light, yet tasty.

If you want to cut down on the amount of olive oil the recipe calls for, use a Misto Olive Oil Sprayer. It is a handy tool for reducing calories without losing flavor.
