1 ½ cup grated Parmesan
Sauce for dipping, we recommend Marinara or Ranch

Preheat your oven to 245°
Spread zucchini slices onto paper towel sheets and sprinkle salt over them and wait about 15 minutes until the zucchini starts to “sweat.” Blot excess water from zucchini slices with paper towel.
Place zucchini in large bowl and add olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and toss together until well covered.
Place zucchini on baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until crispy. Be sure to check them at one hour.
