  • Coarsely chop zucchini noodles into 5- or 6-inch-long pieces. Working in batches, dredge the noodles in the cornstarch; shake off excess. Dredge in the egg whites; shake off excess. Dredge in the panko mixture; shake off excess. Arrange the noodles, well spaced apart, in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Coat with cooking spray.

  • Bake until golden and crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with salt.

  • Combine ranch and marinara in a shallow bowl; serve alongside the fries.

Tips

Tips: Finely grate Parmesan using the medium holes of box grater (you should get about 1/4 cup).

Look for a package of fresh zucchini noodles in the produce department, or make your own zucchini noodles; you'll need about 3 medium or 2 large zucchini for 12 ounces of zoodles.

Equipment: Parchment paper
