Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the wonton wrappers in half diagonally and lay in an even single layer on a large baking sheets.
Spray the wonton wrappers with cooking spray and bake for about 5 minutes until crisp and lightly browned, flipping them midway. Bake in batches until all the wrappers are used.
Increase the oven on broil.
Heat Alfredo sauce until warm.
Place pasta chips on an oven safe dish or foil-lined cookie sheet. Pour Alfredo sauce evenly over chips. Top with desired ingredients (chicken or sausage, tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc.) then sprinkle a layer of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over top.
Place under broiler just long enough to melt the cheese, being careful not to burn the chips.
Remove and garnish with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
If you prefer to fry your pasta chips, use a thermometer to ensure the frying oil reaches the correct temperature of 400 degrees. Too hot, and they’ll burn. Too cold, and you’ll end up with a soggy, oil-drenched mess. Watch carefully — in just 30 – 40 seconds they’ll be toasty!
I like to use canola oil for frying because it has a high smoke point and a neutral flavor. Vegetable and grape seed oils are good alternatives, and either will blend seamlessly with the other flavors in the dish.
