Zucchini Bites

These baked zucchini treats are a great start to any meal.  When choosing zucchini, select those that are smaller in size.  They will be more tender and have thinner skins.  Buy only as many as you need; like most fruits and vegetables, zucchini tastes better when consumed shortly after purchase.
