This is different than others. The convenience of egg roll wrappers, and string cheese takes the form of mozzeralla sticks, and a clean tasting marinara sauce is not overly spiced like some other sauces we've all had. From our home to you and yours. The yield is 2 dozen mozzarella sticks and 3 cups of sauce, I'm estimating 12 servings which will provide 2 apiece, adjust accordingly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large asucepan, saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, water, sugar, salt and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, or until thickened.
  2. Meanwhile, place an egg roll wrapper on a work surface with point facing you. Place a piece of cheese near the bottom corner. Fold bottom corner of wrapper over cheese; roll up just until cheese is enclosed. Fold sides of wrapper over the top. Using a pastry brush, wet the top corner with water. Roll up TIGHTLY, forming a tube. Repeat.
  3. In an electric skillet or deep fat fryer, heat oil to 375'. Fry mozzarella sticks, a few at a time, for 1 minute or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels, or heavy brown paper bag. Discard bay leaf from marinara sauce. Serve with mozzarella sticks.
