Food TikTok’s Got a New Trend: Pasta Chips

Uzma Pathan

TikTok has become a huge culinary content space in the past two years. “Food TikTok” includes chefs from all sorts of backgrounds sharing their techniques and creations with the world. People are creating many new culinary trends through this platform, and they spread like wildfire! Today we’re here to tell you about the latest one: Pasta chips.

What are Pasta Chips?

Pasta chips take the bold italian flavors used in pasta and make them into a crunchy snack! All you have to do is place some boiled pasta in an air fryer. This leaves you with crunchy pasta pieces to dip in the sauce of your choice just like you would with chips. Check out our step by step guide below to learn how to make them at home!

How To Make Them

  1. Boil the pasta of your choice (shape does not matter!) until it’s cooked.
  2. Season season season! This is where the chips get their italian flavor. First add some olive oil and parmesan cheese, then add the seasonings of your choice. Common seasonings used here include italian seasoning, oregano, and garlic powder, or you can just keep it simple with some salt and pepper. Some chefs on Tik Tok have even included buffalo sauce or ranch in this step to jazz it up! It’s all up to your flavor preference.
  3. Next, spread them out and stick them in an air fryer for 10-12 minutes at 180 C. If you don’t have an air fryer you can use an oven instead! Just stick them in for 17-20 minutes at 200 C.
  4. Lastly, take them out and enjoy! They are best served with marinara sauce or any other Italian dip.
