  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) marinara sauce
  • 1 bag (8 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 recipe Parmesan Breadsticks (below)


Step 1

ADD flour to a Reynolds® Large Oven Bag. Shake. Place bag in 2-quart casserole dish at least 2 inches deep.

Step 2

PLACE marinara sauce, 4 oz. mozzarella cheese, parsley, and garlic in bag*. Close bag with tie (found inside package) 4 inches from top. Use hands to gently mix ingredients in bag. Cut six 1/2-inch slits in top of bag to allow steam to escape. Tuck ends of bag in dish.

Step 3

PLACE pan in microwave, allowing room for bag to expand during cooking. Bag should not hang over pan.

Step 4

MICROWAVE 5 to 7 minutes on high or until marinara is warmed through.

Step 5

CUT open top of oven bag carefully. Remember: Always support bag with dish.

Step 6

SPRINKLE hot dip with remaining 4 oz. mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Serve with Parmesan Breadsticks.

Parmesan Breadsticks

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper. On a lightly floured surface, roll 1 package (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza dough into a 10x8-inch rectangle. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Fold the dough in half to make a 5x8-inch rectangle; press lightly to seal the edges. Fold dough in half again to make a 5x4-inch rectangle. Cut into ten 4x 1/2-inch strips. Twist each strip two or three times. Place 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake 14 to 18 minutes until the breadsticks are golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
