Cheese Onion Puff Pastry Straws

It is meatless Monday once again...tonight I took some of my homemade spaghetti sauce from the freezer, and made it up with some Smart Ground.  Smart Ground looks like ground beef, but is all soy protein.
It is a great little product for those of us trying to learn to eat less meat, and willing to try some non-meat products in the process.  Here is a picture of it...the box, and it cooking in the pan.  Looks like meat, eh?

To go with the spaghetti I made some cheese onion straws from puff pastry.
Here is how you do it:
Take one sheet of puff pastry out and set on your counter for 30 minutes to warm up.  Roll it out into a
12 x 10  rectangle on a floured surface.

Brush with an egg wash ( 1 egg mixed with 1 T. water). Sprinkle with thyme, shallots, Parmesan cheese, and salt.  Use whatever amount you like.  Take the rolling pin and roll over the top of the dough pressing the cheese and herbs into the dough.

Cut into 2" strips.  Twist the strips and put on a baking sheet.  Bake at 375 for 12 minutes.

Here they are ready to eat...oh soo good!
