  • 8 oz pasta (I used farfalle)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or granules
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 cup marinara, for dipping


  • Cook pasta according to the package instructions, until al dente. Drain, but no need to rinse.

  • Add cooked pasta to a large bowl with olive oil, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and sea salt. Toss until coated.

  • Place seasoned pasta into your air fryer in a single layer and air fry on 400°F for 10 minutes or until pasta is nice and golden brown and crunchy. Toss once or twice while the pasta is cooking. You may need to do this in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer. I actually put the whole batch in my air fryer and it worked, but it took 20 minutes instead of 10.
  • Once pasta chips are cooked, remove from the air fryer, let cool and enjoy. They're delicious served up with marinara sauce.
