  • 1 (16-ounce) can tomato puree
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 Vidalia onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Arugula Pesto:
  • 1 large bunch arugula
  • 1 large bunch basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Cheese Mousse:
  • 1 Yukon gold potato, peeled
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 1/2 cup feta
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup milk, plus more if needed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Wonton cones: Put the wrappers in a muffin pan and bake in the oven until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Marinara sauce: Put tomato puree, broth, carrot, celery, onion and garlic in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until reduced by 1/3. Add salt and red pepper flakes, to taste.

  • Arugula pesto: Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and puree until completely combined.

  • Cheese Mousse: Put the potato in a saucepan of cold salted water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook the potato until soft. Combine the cheeses in a mixing bowl. Dice the potato and add to the cheeses. Stir in the scallions and milk and mix until smooth. If necessary, add more milk to achieve a creamy texture. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and set aside.

  • To serve, spoon some spicy tomato sauce into the bottom of each wonton 'cone', top with cheese mousse and finish with arugula pesto. Arrange them on a serving platter and serve.
