Total Time:

4 to 6 servings (5 sticks per person)

  • 3 pounds part-skim mozzarella block
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 5 cups bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 10 sheets fresh egg pasta (7-by-10 inches per sheet)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1/2 cup favorite marinara or pizza sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan
  • Slice cheese into 1/2-by-1/2-by-6-inch long cubes and set aside.

  • In a small bowl, mix egg yolks with 1 cup water. In a separate bowl, mix the bread crumbs and Italian seasoning. Set out the pasta sheets and brush both sides with the egg wash.

  • Place the cheese sticks on the edge of the pasta sheets and roll 1 complete roll and cut, allowing enough excess, about 1/2-inch of pasta on both ends of the cheese stick. Fold the ends of the pasta like a present and brush with egg wash. Dip the entire stick into the egg wash and roll in the bread crumbs.

  • In a deep fryer or pan with a couple of inches of hot vegetable oil, add the sticks and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes,. Do not overcook or the cheese will spill out. Heat up the marinara or pizza sauce and serve on the side for dipping. Sprinkle Parmesan over the sauce and sticks.
