Panko and Parmesan cheese give these crispy appetizers the same look and feel as traditional cheese sticks but for a fraction of the calories. Instead of cheese, dredge zucchini sticks in a breadcrumbs, panko, and Parm mixture then broil (versus frying) for a crispy texture. Six zucchini sticks with red pepper sauce only have 170 calories which is roughly equivalent to only two cheese sticks without sauce.
