Baked Mozzarella Sticks
This is a fantastic, healthier substitute to deep-fried mozzarella sticks. I like to serve the sticks with spaghetti.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min
- 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
- 8 pieces string cheese, cut crosswise in half
- 1 cup marinara or spaghetti sauce, warmed

- Place 2 in. apart on a foil-lined baking sheet, point side down. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce.
