  • Easy Italian nachos recipe

    I’m not sure why, but I can’t stop recreating my favorites that are no longer accessible. I’ve been obsessing over Addison’s Italian nachos for over 12 years. Addison’s is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbia, Missouri, where Chris claims to have taken me on a date years ago. If only I had realized it was a date. Oops. Years later, we laughed about it & frequented it together. Now I try to time our trips between St. Louis & Kansas City so that we have to stop for lunch or dinner in Columbia.

    Incredible Italian nachos recipe with asiago cream sauce on a bed of pasta chips!

    {oven ready}

    Last weekend, I decided to recreate Addison’s Italian nachos to cure my craving. I made fresh pasta chips, but also tried them on tortilla chips, which didn’t disappoint.

    It’s difficult to find really great nachos. I never knew I was a nacho connoisseur, but I have had a lot of bad nachos since we moved to St. Louis. Seriously. Either the cheese sauce disappoints or the chicken is too dry, but I’ve yet to find a great plate of nachos. This is my absolute favorite way to prepare chicken – it’s always cooked through, but moist. I think you’re going to love it!
