Instead of making mozzarella sticks with marinara dipping sauce, stir the cheese into the sauce for a hot and a hearty appetizer.

Ingredients

2
cups chunky marinara sauce
8

2

2

Steps

  • 1 Pour marinara sauce into 1 1/2-quart slow cooker.
  • 2 Cover and cook on Low heat setting about 2 hours or until hot.
  • 3 Stir in cheese and basil. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 30 minutes or until cheese is just starting to melt. Serve with baguette slices.

Expert Tips

For an adventurous change of flavor, try using goat cheese instead of the fresh mozzarella.

Garnish the warm appetizer with fresh basil leaves.

Fresh mozzarella is not the same as the regular mozzarella that we usually purchase. It has a mild flavor and much softer texture than its more common relative. You'll usually find the fresh variety in the deli or specialty cheese area of the store.
