These pasta chips are crunchy, salty, and delicious. I like them plain but feel free to serve them with a marinara dipping sauce if desired. Store in an airtight container.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain, but do not rinse. Let sit for 2 minutes.

  • Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Meanwhile, transfer pasta to a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil; stir in Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt until evenly combined. Arrange 1/4 of the pasta in a single layer in the air fryer basket.

  • Cook in the preheated air fryer for 5 minutes; flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and break apart any pasta chips that have stuck together; let cool completely. Repeat with remaining pasta.


All air fryers are not created equal. Mine is just under 4 quarts and I was able to fit 1/4 of the pasta at one time.
