Recipe of the Week...Zucchini Squares!

Okay, so I am proclaiming every Friday as my Recipe Day of the Week since I owe you folks some recipes from over the summer (is it the end already???? sniff, sniff...tear).

Today's recipe is an old family favorite with some minor tweaks to make it a little healthier.

Leah's Zucchini Squares

4 cups zucchini, shredded or grated
2 eggs, beaten
2 egg whites, beaten
1 cup of baking mix like Bisquick
(I used Ginger Evans biscuit and baking mix--a Save-a-lot brand that I had on hand.)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup Sargento reduced fat mild cheddar cheese
2 slices American cheese, torn up in small chunks

Mix all together and season to taste: onion powder, garlic or garlic scapes, salt, a pinch of pepper, parsley and a pinch of oregano. I think I used a tsp. of the spices mentioned. Mix together and pour in a non-stick sprayed baking dish. Bake at 350°F uncovered for 45 minutes or so. It will set after awhile out of the oven. Cut into 9 squares. One square per serving, 4 WW points (according to my calculations).
