Baked zucchini & prosciutto bites


This recipe came to me when I was hungry grazing around the kitchen waiting for my husband to come home. I still had 2 hours before we would eat dinner, yet I was so hungry that the usual glass of water and a walk outside wouldn't do the trick.

So I peaked inside the fridge and found a zucchini that was starting to look pretty sad.

I peeled it, sliced it, decorated with 1 prosciutto slice, sprinkled some aged parmesan and baked for 10 minutes in the oven. Before I served it, I sprinkled a tiny bit of TJ's chili lime seasoning on it.

Honestly guys, it blew my mind how yummy this was!!!

It looked very fancy yet so easy to make. Next time you need a snack or you're hosting a party and wonder what to make as an app - make that!

Beside it's simplicity, this recipes has only 119 calories so you will still be hungry for dinner.

Enjoy!!!
