Dress up plain breadsticks with this quick-and-easy recipe that calls for dried tomatoes, Romano cheese, and rosemary. Use the make-ahead option when time is short.
- Drain dried tomatoes, reserving 4 teaspoons of the oil. Finely snip tomatoes. Combine tomatoes, cheese, rosemary, pepper, the reserved oil, and 4 teaspoons water in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Unroll dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll each portion into a 10x8-inch rectangle. Spread tomato mixture crosswise over half of each rectangle. Fold in half; cut rectangles lengthwise into 1/2-inch wide strips and twist 2 or 3 times.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Place the twisted dough strips about 1 inch apart on lightly oiled baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer breadsticks to a wire rack. Cool completely. Makes 20 breadsticks.
