I had to jump on this band wagon and give these pasta chips a try! I never in my life thought that making pasta into a chip would be a thing but here we are. 2021 making pasta chips in an air fryer! I gave it a try to share my thoughts. They came out delicious and cripsy. I made a whipped up ricotta dip to eat these chips with. These can easily be eaten with any favorite dip! Check it out!
Pasta Chips with Whipped Ricotta Dip
12 oz uncooked pasta (any pasta will work but if you plan to dip try and use slightly bigger)
1-2 bsp olive oil
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
(Note: you can use any seasoning you like)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
2 tsp lemon juice, fresh
salt/pepper to taste
chopped chives, for garnish
Directions: In a medium bowl add in all ingredients for the ricotta dip (minus the chives) and mix well till fully combined. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Cook the pasta in heavily salted water till al dente. Drain the pasta and transfer to a bowl or add back to the pot. Toss pasta with olive, seasoning and grated cheese. Preheat air fryer (note: I have an oven air fryer and mine preheats at 400° for 4 minutes) Add the pasta in a single layer to the rack and place in the air fryer at 400° for 10-13 minutes shaking halfway through. Cook in batches if needed. You are looking for a nice golden color with a perfect crunch. Remove from air fryer and serve with whipped ricotta dip or any dip of choice. (Note: You can also bake these in the oven at 400° for 20-25 minutes.
Note: Cook times may vary based on pasta size and type of air fryer. Keep an eye on the pasta towards the end of the cook time, my 2nd batch I forgot and burnt rather quick! Oops!! 🙂 Use any spices of your choice!
