Because they begin with refrigerated breadstick dough, these twists are a snap to put together.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated breadstick dough
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; saute 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
Unroll dough, separating into strips. Brush with the garlic mixture. Sprinkle with basil, cheese, and pepper, gently pressing into dough. Twist breadsticks, and place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Gently press ends of breadsticks onto baking sheet.
Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
This is simply a good, solid recipe. I was expecting more flavor with all those ingredients, however. Maybe I'll add more of something next time. Or maybe a a light brushing of garlic butter when they come out would help boost the flavor (but not help the calories).
