Vishesh's Grilled Cheese Breadsticks and Marinara

One of my favorite combinations of all time is the Italian triad of flour, cheese, and tomatoes: pizza crust covered in tomato sauce and mozzarella, pasta topped with marinara and parmesan, tomato soup garnished with asiago and breadcrumbs. It's just perfection! With just a little effort, the beloved grilled cheese sandwich can be tweaked to make a fun finger-food appetizer.

Grilled Cheese Breadsticks and Marinara
1 grilled cheese sandwich
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground oregano and basil
salt and pepper to taste

 In a bowl, reduce the sauce in the microwave for 60 seconds. Add the spices and stir well. Cut the sandwich into 4-5 strips, de-crusting if desired. Dip and enjoy!
