How to make it

  • Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Lightly oil 2 large (17 by 13 inch) baking sheets.
  • Divide dough in half.
  • Keep half of dough covered with a clean kitchen towel (not terry cloth).
  • Gently roll out other half into a 10-inch square on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin.
  • (Use your hands to pull corners.
  • If dough is very elastic, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest about 3 minutes.)
  • Cut square in half with a pizza wheel or a sharp heavy knife, then cut each half crosswise into 15 strips (about 2/3 inch wide).
  • Cover strips with a clean kitchen towel.
  • Keeping remaining strips covered, gently tie each strip into a knot, pulling ends slightly to secure
  • (if dough is sticky, dust lightly with flour) and arranging knots 1 inch apart in staggered rows on 1 baking sheet.
  • Keep knots covered with clean kitchen towels.
  • Roll out and cut remaining dough, then form into knots, arranging 1 inch apart in staggered rows on second baking sheet.
  • Bake, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until golden, 20 to 25 minutes total.
  • While knots bake, mince garlic and mash to a paste with salt, then stir together with olive oil in a very large bowl.
  • Immediately after baking, toss knots in garlic oil, then sprinkle with parsley and cheese and toss to coat.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Makes approximately 5 dozen

    Could you make your own dough with the addition of the garlic and parsley incorporated into the dough? Therefore not needing the oil to coat? Just a question.
