An oven-baked, healthy, crunchy, flavorful vegetarian alternative to traditional restaurant eggplant Parmesan, and it follows Weight Watcher's new Points Plus program. From an Italian kitchen, it is also quick and easy. You may also substitute with zucchini or eggplant. Good served as shown or top with a marinara sauce. (Recipe by Colleen Rooney)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash squash. Cut off ends and slice lengthwise into four slices per squash. Coat large baking sheet with cooking spray. Use two shallow dishes, each large enough to fit a slice of the squash. Put the Egg Beaters in the first dish. In the second dish, combine the crumbs and Parmesan and mix well. Dip both sides of squash in Egg Beaters and then dredge and coat well with crumb mixture. Place on baking sheet. Repeat for all remaining squash slices. Spray the tops of the slices with cooking spray. Bake approximately 30 minutes, turning once after 15 minutes.

  • Couldn't wait to try this because yellow squash is only 0.19 cents a pound right now. They were really good and turned out nice and crunchy. I was going to serve them for dinner, but my hubby and grandkids were around and as soon as these came out of the oven and were cool enough to touch, they gobbled them up as crunchy snacks. Grandson said these are better than munching on chips, and sure better or you. Knock me over with a feather that hubby was eating them too as he is not a veggie snacker at all.
