Air Fryer Pasta Chips


Have you seen the viral TikTok pasta chip recipe going around? My version is made in the air fryer and is super easy! Your kids will love munching on these air fryer pasta chips, and so will the adults!

Hey everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, sharing a viral TikTok recipe that I know you are going to love! TikTok recipes are so fun. Have you tried any? I LOVE the pancake cereal trend but will pass on the baked feta pasta recipe that everyone was making!

This is going to become another favorite snack recipe. I like to grab a handful of these pasta chips and eat them along with some potato chip cookies for a little salty and a little sweet.

Did you know you can make crunchy chips out of pasta? I had no idea either until I saw this on TikTok. I knew I had to try it! This is a lot of fun to make. Since it uses the air fryer, even your kids can make their own chips.

Chips Made Out Of Pasta

So the basis of this recipe is that you first boil the pasta and then bake it to make it crispy. I decided to use an air fryer to get them extra crispy without any added oil! I topped mine with fresh herbs and parmesan cheese and they turned out so tasty! Serve them with marinara sauce, pizza sauce, or even ranch dressing for a fun appetizer or snack!

I used pasta sauce in the photos, but after taking the photos, I pulled some leftover ricotta cheese and balsamic drizzle out of my fridge and mixed them together. It made a delicious dip for the chips!

Air Fryer pasta chips Tips

Use bowtie noodles

When looking at all the versions of this recipe, many different types of pasta were used. I saw rigatoni, elbows, rotini, and bow ties. I tried three different types and the bow ties were definitely the best. You can have a crispy end crunch and a little bit of pasta texture in the thicker middle. They are also the perfect shape for dipping!

don’t overcook your pasta

Cook your pasta till al dente. If you overcook and then fry, your will be cooking your pasta to smithereens!
