How To Make Parmesan Pasta Chips

Cook your pasta according to the package directions.

In a mixing bowl, add your cooked pasta, parmesan cheese, and seasoning. Drizzle oil over the top and toss the seasoning blend until combined.

Place pasta in the basket of your air fryer, lining the base until the bottom is filled. It’s ok for the pasta to be touching. Do not layer. The size of your air fryer will determine how many pasta pieces you can fit in a single layer.

Air fry at 400 degrees for ten minutes. Tossing halfway. Cook until the bow tie pasta chips are golden brown.

This fun snack idea is a great way to enjoy a viral tiktok recipe with friends! It’s easy peasy and has all the right flavors. Serve alongside your favorite dipping sauce. We prefer marinara sauce.

Tips And Variations:

  • Make sure you don’t overstuff your air fryer basket. You will have to work in batches for this recipe.
  • This crunchy snack works with a variety of pasta shapes. Bowtie pasta is how this dish is shown the most online, but consider using tortellini! It is SO GOOD!
  • While I typically use fresh garlic when cooking, this recipe requires garlic powder.
  • You can absolutely substitute in whole wheat pasta if that is your preference. Same with gluten-free pasta.
  • Marinara sauce is the preferred accompaniment, but please consider other favorite dips if you’d like to vary the experience.
  • Top with red pepper flakes / red chili flakes.
  • As a reminder, you need to cook your pasta according to the package. Do not place raw pasta in your air fryer.
  • Consider using leftover pasta the next day to create this air fryer pasta chips recipe. You don’t always have to make a fresh batch.
  • To store, place leftovers in an airtight container. This fun recipe makes for a great snack the next day!

It’s always fun to try out viral recipes you find online. I really hope you give this one a try. Who knows? It just might become a new favorite snack of yours!
