As a kid, I would always order the Italian Sampler plate at Olive Garden and on it was fried zucchini, which I LOVED. I still love zucchini, but of course shouldn't eat it battered and deep fried, so I made my own version and it was awesome!
Cast of characters: 1 large zucchini, half an onion, diced tomato, sliced mushrooms, garlic, olive oil, panko bread crumbs, S&P and mozzarella or parm cheese
Slice zucchini in half lengthwise and with a large spoon hollow out the middle
It tasted just like I remember the fried zucchini from Olive Garden tasting & way less calories!
