- 1/4 cup fine dried bread crumbs shopping list
- 1/3 cup grated imported parmesan cheese shopping list
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled shopping list
- 2 to 3 dashed cayenne pepper shopping list
- 1/2 teaspoon salt shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper shopping list
- 1 large egg shopping list

How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a heavy baking sheet with the oil and set aside.
- In a shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, rosemary, cayenne, salt and pepper, and mix well. In a second shallow dish, lightly beat the egg.
- Trim the ends of the squash. Cut each squash in half lengthwise. Lay the halves flat and cut in half lengthwise again. Then cut the strips in half crosswise. Dredge each piece first in the egg and then in the Parmesan mixture, coating evenly. Arrange well spaced in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, then turn the squash over and bake 5 to 7 minutes longer, or until crisp and lightly browned. Serve hot or at room temperature.
