Crispy Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

My new favorite recipe! I missed my summer produce by working long hours, so I've been hungry for zucchini. So, first, panko is a coarse bread crumb (almost like cracker) found by the other bread crumbs. Second, you can be creative -- I tried summer squash, tilapia, and other stuff instead of zucchini. Third, I found the egg added a taste I didn't want, so I've been using cooking spray instead. Fourth, instead of mixing the spices into the flour, I've been sprinkling straight on the zucchini.
