Italian Baked Zucchini

6 slices bacon, finely chopped
2 tbl olive oil
2 tbl minced onion
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup thinly sliced prosciutto
salt and pepper to taste
6 small zucchini, trimmed
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.

Cook the bacon in a small skillet over medium heat. When almost crisp, add the olive oil and turn the heat up to medium-high. Add the onion and cook 2 min. or until tender. Add the oregano and prosciutto and cook 1 min. Remove from the skillet and season with salt and pepper.

Cut the zucchini in half crosswise, then in quarters lengthwise. Put the zucchini in the baking dish skin side down. Sprinkle with the bacon mixture and scatter the parsley on top. Cover and bake 20 min.
