Ingredients

3 tablespoons Parmesan

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

Slice cheese into 1/2-by-1/2-by-6-inch long cubes and set aside.

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
