Easy Cheese Sticks

4 slices of whole grain or whole wheat bread

3 sticks of mozzarella string cheese

1/2 tablespoon melted butter

Marinara sauce for dipping, if desired

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the crusts off the bread and place one slice diagonally on cutting board.  Roll with a rolling pin until very flat.  Cut off about 1/3 of the end of one of the string cheese sticks and reserve; place the other 2/3 portion on the bread in one corner diagonally, and roll up tightly.  Place on a baking sheet, seam side down.  Repeat with remaining ingredients, using the reserved three cut ends for the last cheese stick.  Brush with butter.  Bake at 350 degrees for ten minutes.  If cheese oozes out the end, us a spatula to press it back in while it is still warm.  Serve with marinara sauce, if desired.
