  2. Wonton cones: Put the wrappers in a muffin pan and bake in the oven until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. Arugula pesto: Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and puree until completely combined.
  5. 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.
