This is from a Cooking Light magazine and I would have to say that I was not totally bowled over by it but it was quite easy, fast and tasted pretty okay. I dipped it in some marinara and it was quite good... was also good with a hot bowl of soup. However, it doesn't keep well.. I noticed that it lost it's crispness when I stored a few of the leftovers in an air-tight container. The original recipe calls for Pecorino Romano cheese while I used Parmesan since that's what I had.

1) Preheat oven to 450F
2) Combine flours, cheese, baking powder and pepper. Add water and oil. Stir until dough forms.
3) Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly 4/5 times.
4) Divide into 18 equal portions and shape each into a 8 inch rope.
5) Place ropes on baking sheet coated with cooking spray and bake for 10 mins or until bottoms are golden brown. Serve with a dip of choice.
