Elegant Parmesan Herb Twists opened up the meal, wrapped in parchment collars and standing in short glasses.



Thaw two sheets of frozen puff pastry.  While the oven preheats to 400 degrees, lay the thawed pastry on a lightly floured surface.  Brush both sheets with one egg plus one tablespoon water whisked together.  Sprinkle one pastry sheet with a mixture of  3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley, and 1 tsp dried oregano, reserving 1/4 cup of this mixture.  Place the plain pastry sheet over the sprinkled pastry sheet.  Seal and slightly flatten it by going over it gently with a rolling pin.  Using a large knife, cut the pastry in half along the short side.  Then slice along the long edge of the now halved pastry sandwiches every 1/2 inch to make about 15-20 strips.  Twist the strips a few turns and place them on a baking sheet.  Brush again with the egg and sprinkle with remaining parmesan-herb mixture.   Bake for 11 minutes.  Remove the Parmesan Herb Twists from the pan and allow them to cool for a few minutes before arranging and serving.

Buon Appetito!
