Sprinkle with remaining 3 tablespoons cheese; press in gently. Cut crosswise into 12 strips. Gently twist each strip. Place 1/2 inch apart on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with additional pepper.

Success Hint
Don't be afraid of the dough when pulling and twisting. Each breadstick will be slightly different in shape and length, but try to keep them as close to the same size as possible so they'll bake evenly.
If you like spicy food, try adding a touch of ground red pepper (cayenne) to these cheesy breadsticks. You'll need only about 1/8 teaspoon, unless you really want to spice it up. Sprinkle it on with the Parmesan cheese.
