 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2                    summer squash -- * see note
    2      Tablespoons   low calorie Italian salad dressing
    3      Tablespoons   bread crumbs -- Italian-style
    3      Tablespoons   Romano cheese -- grated
 
 * Use 2 medium yellow summer squash OR zucchini OR medium eggplant.
 
      Cut squash or zucchini into 1/4-inch slices. Place in plastic bag, add
 the Italian dressing and shake to coat thoroughly.
      Into a separate bag place the cheese and bread crumbs. Add the coated
 vegetables slices, close bag, and shake to coat. Using a non-stick pan
 sprayed with cooking spray, add the vegetables in a single layer. Bake in
 preheated 450 degree oven for 5-7 minutes, just until tender-crisp.
      If using eggplant, slice into 3/4-inch thick slices. Moisten with the
 Italian dressing, and roll in the cheese-bread crumb mixture. Bake for 5-6
 minutes at 475 degrees, turn and bake other side for about 5 more minutes.
