This is my new favorite side dish or appetizer. I created these with some of the leftover marinara, panko crumbs, and Parmesan I used for the Chicken ParmesanI was making for dinner. The zucchini coins were simple and quick to make and tasted wonderful! I loved the flavors and textures of this dish with the soft zucchini and marinara sauce, the salty cheese, and the crispy panko. I will be serving these the next time I need an appetizer or nice side dish.Zucchini Coins with Marinara and Parmesan: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
