Pasta chips: the recipe for the snack that is trending on TikTok

With more than 500 million views on the social network, it is undoubtedly the snack of the summer. If you don’t know pasta chips yet, they will surely invade the tables for your next aperitifs. And they are mouth-watering, they taste like pasta and crisp like chips, what more could you ask for? Perhaps sacrilegious to some, we can imagine the Italians rolling their eyes and raising their arms to the sky.

This hybrid snack is therefore the latest food trend straight out of TikTok. American food blogger Yumna Jawad’s video on the Feel Good Foodies network has already been viewed more than 23 million times. And if the sauce is so well received, it is because the recipe is very simple and accessible to everyone. Since then, everyone has published their culinary creation and its many variations. In addition, this snack is considered relatively healthier than chips thanks to its preparation method. Of course, we suspect it should be consumed in moderation. If even Goop, the blog of Gwyneth Paltrow, the healthy pope, is talking about it, it’s because you need to embark on the experience.

Very easy, start by choosing your favorite pasta (rigatoni, penne, fusilli, farfalle…) and cook it as usual. Then season it with olive oil, parmesan, garlic, aromatic herbs or spices as desired. Cook them until crispy in an air fryer. This cooking technique makes it possible not to use a lot of oil, for example two teaspoons of oil are enough for fritters. If you do not have such a device, the oven will also do.

We eat the pasta chips with a sauce that we dip them in. Here, all the flavors are back in nature, tomato sauce, yogurt or feta sauce, pesto… Indulge yourself!
