Oven-Baked Zucchini Fries

I love… french fries. There I said it! What I love even more is making healthy options for my fries so I don’t ever feel the need to indulge in the bad ones. These zucchini fries are PACKED with flavor and beyond crispy on outside. They make the perfect side dish any night of the week!
