I LOVE the Italian Nachos at Johnny Carino's. This is a recipe I am working on to get my fix at home.

Wow! I fried the wontons just because I was Leary of baking them. Now that I know these are "spot on" per DH I will try baking next time. Delicious and sure to save on our weekly trip to Carinos just for my fix. Just think! We can explore new restaurants in town. Woohoo!

Love this recipe. I made it for our Super Bowl snack and used Olive Garden Garlic Alfredo Sauce for the sauce. I did bake the wontons and turned out they needed to be baked longer but just a minute, two was too much on the first batch.

We have never had Italian Nachos before, so we can't compare them to any restaurant. But, everyone in our family really enjoyed them. I did make a few slight changes. We have both vegetarians and meat eaters in our house. So for the Italian sausage I used a vegetarian version of it that we all like. I used the Italian seasoning option and left off the optional pepper flakes. I also used a light Alfredo sauce. I would suggest that you keep an eye on the wonton wrappers while they are cooking, luckily I checked on mine. They were perfectly browned at 4 1/2 minutes. These made a yummy, quick and easy meal.
