Viral pasta chips

We’ve got yet another viral recipe taking the internet by storm. But to tell you the truth, we see EXACTLY what the fuss is about. This recipe combines two of my favorite things. Pasta, and chips.

It’s traditionally done in an air fryer, but if you don’t have one at home, don’t worry. I’ve included baking instructions as well.

What’s awesome about this recipe?

  • It takes no time at all

  • It looks like you tried really hard

  • It’s totally customizable

  • And of course, it’s super delicious

Opt-in for gluten-free pasta if your sensitive or intolerant, and you’re laughing all the way to the bank.

Serve with marinara or dipping sauce of choice and enjoy.



2 cups of your pasta of choice – I like farfalle or rigatoni

1 tbsp of olive or avocado oil

½ cup fresh parmesan cheese

1 tbsp fresh garlic (optional)

Seasoning of choice – opt for chili flakes, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne for a spicier alternative. Or salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning for a milder approach. Have fun with this step.


  1. Cook your pasta according to box directions – make sure your noodles are fork-tender but still firm to the bite

  2. Pre-heat your air-fryer to 400F

  3. In a large bowl, coat your noodles in oil and your spice and cheese mixture

  4. Place noodles in the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes

  5. Toss the noodles and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes

  6. NOTE: Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook your noodles in batches

  7. Allow to cool completely for ultimate crispiness

  1. Preheat oven to 375F

  2. On a lined baking sheet, spread your marinated pasta noodles

  3. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown

Remember, not all ovens and air-fryers are created equally. This may take a few rounds of trial and error for you to get your chips exactly as you like them. But we know when you do, you’ll have found your new addiction.
