Cheesy Spring Rolls with Marinara Sauce
- Cooking and Prep: 45 m
- Serves: 24
For the Spring Rolls
Place a spring roll wrapper on your work surface with a corner pointed towards you. Place string cheese toward the bottom.
Fold bottom corner over cheese, rolling once, and then fold in each side. Continue to roll up and wet the top corner with a wet pastry brush (or your fingers) so that the wrapper will stay closed. Press tightly to seal.
Repeat with remaining wrappers and cheese.
In a deep pan or pot, heat oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and fry cheese sticks in batches until brown, about one minute. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on paper towels. Serve with marinara sauce (see below).
Add spring rolls carefully to the hot oil to prevent splatters. Don’t overcrowd the pan as this will bring down the temperature of the oil.
For the Marinara Sauce
Sauté onion and garlic in oil in a large saucepan or pot until soft. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and let simmer uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes or until thickened. Remove bay leaf.
