If you have been noticing the new viral trend on TikTok, Pasta Chips, you are not alone. These boiled and then baked or air-fried pasta noodles are taking the world by storm as everyone discovered pasta can be served in a beautiful golden brown crunchy chip-like appetizer.
01 Boil pasta al dente.
02 Drizzle on olive oil.
03 Season with ranch seasoning.
04 Air Fry for 12-15 minutes.
05 Alternative method - Oven for 25 minutes.
06 Serve with pizza sauce.
Boil noodles first
Pasta chips can be easily made in the air fryer or oven, but need to be boiled and then seasoned.
Oven baked too!
No Air Fryer? No problem! These "chips" can be baked as well.
Any kind of pasta works
Any type of pasta noodle can technically be used, although Bowtie (Farfalle) and Rigatoni are the most popular. I have made both and bowties result in a better taste and quick a bit faster. Rigatoni, by the mere fact that they are larger and thicker noodles, are tougher and have more of a “burnt cheese” flavor over a chip once done. I personally recommend Farfalle if you are a first time recipe maker.
