These zucchini are great. My boyfriend loves them so much. Usually serve them with Ranch Dressing.
I told them that we'll have zucchini fries today, they were kind of confused, but when they saw them coming from the oven, I was already sure this recipe will be a hit in our house. I doubled the recipe and by the end of the day we had none left. Thanks for sharing!
