Ingredients

1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce package, such as Pepperidge Farm), thawed in the refrigerator

2 tablespoons salted butter, melted 

1 cup grated mozzarella (hard, not fresh) 

3/4 cup grated Parmesan 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil 

1 large egg 

Warm marinara, for serving

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Lightly roll out the sheet of pastry into a 10-by-12-inch rectangle, then brush with the melted butter. Sprinkle over the mozzarella, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan, the oregano and basil. Using a rolling pin, press the cheese into the pastry. Cut the 12-inch side of the pastry into 12 strips. Twist each strip about 5 times and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Mix together the egg and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Brush the strips with the egg mixture and sprinkle over the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake until golden brown and puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool before removing from the baking sheet. Serve the cheese sticks with warm marinara alongside.
