Italian Nachos…

Kris was in Kansas City visiting her favorite sister (Ha Ha). We took her to Cascone’s and let her try Italian Nachos. She loved them!

Found this on line- not sure if this is how they make them but it is worth a try…

Italian Nachos

Ingredients:

1 package won tons (found in the produce section) cut on the diagonal, to make triangles. (Deep fry till crisp)

1 lb. ground Italian sausage (browned and drained)

1/4 cup banana peppers

Parmesan cheese (for garnish)

2 roma tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup sliced black olives

grated Mozzarella cheese for garnish

Alfredo Cheese Sauce

4 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

3 tablespoons flour

2 1/2 cups half and half

2 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add garlic and then whisk in flour. Cook, stirring constantly for about 3 minutes. Increase the heat to medium and whisk in the half and half a little at a time. Cook until thickened, for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add 2 cups of Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until cheese melts and the sauce is smooth. Cover. Set aside. (If sauce gets too thick, blend in a little milk, or more half and half.)

Heat a heavy saucepan or deep fryer filled with oil to medium. (It should take about 20 minutes for oil to heat) Cook won tons until light brown. It only takes a few seconds, per side. Drain on paper towels.

Pile the won ton chips on a large serving platter. Drizzle with warm cheese sauce. Add sausage, tomatoes, olives and peppers. Top with Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese , melt cheese in oven.
