Ingredients

  • 4 cups thinly sliced yellow summer squash (3 medium)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 350°. Place squash in a large bowl. Add oil and seasonings; toss to coat.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs and cheese. Dip squash in crumb mixture to coat both sides, patting to help coating adhere. In batches, arrange squash in a single layer on tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until squash is tender and coating is golden brown, about 10 minutes.
