Macaroni Grill Nachos Napoli with Asiago Cream
7 ounces won-ton wrappers (about 1/3 of a medium package)
2/3 cup Asiago Cream Sauce (recipe follows)
1/3 cup ( 3ounces) ground Italian sausage, fully cooked
2 cups (8 ounces) grated mozzarella cheese, divided use
1/2 cup fresh tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup Kalamata black olives, sliced
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1/4 cup banana peppers, sliced
ASIAGO CREAM SAUCE:
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 Tablespoons water
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1 1/2 cups Asiago cheese, shredded
Separate won-ton wrappers and cut each square in half diagonally to
form triangles. Deep-fry wrappers in canola oil until light brown,
about 30-45 seconds. Drain on paper towels.
On a large, ovenproof dish, place fried wrappers, curled-side down,
in a single layer. Top with Asiago Cream Sauce and cooked sausage.
Add half of the mozzarella cheese
(1 cup). Layer on the tomatoes, olives, scallions and banana
Top with remaining mozzarella and broil at 400 to 500 degrees F.
until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
TO MAKE ASIAGO CREAM SAUCE:
In a cup, combine cornstarch and water. Heat cream in a small
saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in bouillon granules and
cornstarch-water mixture. Add Asiago cheese and stir until melted
and smooth, about 5 minutes. Makes 3 cups.
Note: Won-ton wrappers can be found in the produce or freezer
sections of your supermarket. Asiago is an Italian cheese similar to
Parmesan but has a smoother texture and mellower flavor. It can be
found in most grocery stores. Use any leftover cream sauce to top
steamed vegetables or a baked potato.
