Pesto, Tomato and Feta Straws

We are not big snackers at our house. However, every now and then, it is nice to have something quick and easy to munch on. I saw a recipe for Cheese & Mustard Straws over at With a Blast. I pinned it immediately, knowing I wanted to try it soon. (I love Linda and her blog .... I think I need to drop by her house for dinner one night!) 

I had some leftover pesto, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese that I wanted to use up and thought her concept would be perfect! My family loved them. My only complaint was I should have made more! Yum! Thanks for the great idea, Linda! :)







Pesto, Tomato and Feta Straws
Inspired by With a Blast
Yield: about 12-15 straws

1 roll frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 tbsp. prepared pesto sauce
1-2 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes in oil, patted dry and chopped
2 oz. Feta cheese, crumbled
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400°F. 
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Carefully unroll the puff pastry. Spread pesto sauce over half of the dough - width-wise (shorter direction). Top with tomatoes and Feta. Flip the plain part of the dough over the part with all the ingredients. Slightly press down with your hands to seal. 
Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough into 1-in. strips. Carefully twist the ends and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strips. 
Brush the tops with the beaten eggs.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the straws are golden brown and crispy. 
I hope you enjoy!
