The latest food trend going on Tiktok is Pasta Chips! Yep, you read right Pasta Chips!
I was totally skeptical at first and was a little scared to try them. I mean it seems criminal to turn pasta into chips right?
They looked so good though so I couldn’t resist, and I’m so glad I did! They turned out so crispy like potato chips with the perfect crunch.
This recipe is easy to make in 10 minutes to cook in an airfryer. I’ve also made a batch in the oven below for anyone that doesn’t have an airfryer.
Pasta Chips are definitely worth the hype and a snack you must try!
Ingredients to make Pasta Chips
- Pasta, short pasta should be used and the shape works best if it can scoop up the sauce. In this recipe, I’ve used farfalle (bow tie pasta) but shells, rigatoni or even fusilli pasta would work too. Gluten-free and pulse pasta are also great options
- Olive oil is my preferred oil however you can also use avocado oil or your oil of choice
- Oregano gives it that nice aroma and herb flavour
- Garlic powder for all my fellow garlic lovers
- Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (parmesan cheese) always makes everything better! Or you can also use nutritional yeast to make a vegan option
- Chili flakes (optional) for that kick
- Everything Bagel Seasoning
- Chili Powder
