Grissini

         1 packet active dried yeast or one cube of fresh yeast
            1 tsp sugar
            1 1/2 cups warm water
            4 cups plain flour
            1/4 cup Olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh Basil
            1/4 cup Parmiggiano, grated
                        2 tsp salt
 Place the yeast, sugar and water together in a bowl and set aside 
till frothy - takes approx 5-8min. Then sift the flour and salt into a 
bowl and stir in the yeast mixture along with olive oil.
 Knead well into a pliable dough.
Roll it out on a floured surface and knead for 10min. It should be soft 
and elastic.
 Roll out into a circle and fill in the center with chopped Basil and Parmesan. Can add some minced garlic too.
 Bring the ends up, close the filling and knead well till the filling is well incorporated all over the dough. Place in a well oiled bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. It will double in size.
 Now take the dough into 12 pieces. If you want it very thin, then it will yeild approx 25 pieces. Now roll each of the pieces into a long stick about 12 inches long. Place on a greased baking sheet and top it off with more Parmiggiano.
 Bake for 15-20min or until golden in a preheated Oven to 400F.
