If you love the way mozzarella sticks ooze with cheese, but you don't love their typically greasy bite, try this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. By using part-skim cheese and baking instead of frying the sticks, the chefs in Food Network Kitchen have transformed these craveable eats into a surprisingly healthy dish. You’ll still get that desired golden exterior, thanks to an herbed breadcrumb mixture, and creamy center, but you'll be saving on most of the richness. Serve with store-bought marinara sauce for an easy dip.
