1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce package, such as pepperidge farm), thawed in the refrigerator
2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
1 cup grated mozzarella (hard, not fresh)
3/4 cup grated parmesan
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 large egg
warm marinara, for serving

Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Lightly roll out the sheet of pastry into a 10-by-12-inch rectangle, then brush with the melted butter. Sprinkle over the mozzarella, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan, the oregano and basil. Using a rolling pin, press the cheese into the pastry. Cut the 12-inch side of the pastry into 12 strips. Twist each strip about 5 times and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix together the egg and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Brush the strips with the egg mixture and sprinkle over the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake until golden brown and puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool before removing from the baking sheet. Serve the cheese sticks with warm marinara alongside.
