Tik Tok Pasta Chip Recipe
Do you think the creators of tik tok ever imagined that it would be known not just for quick videos but also for creating viral recipes?! I love the funny dances as much as the next person, but you won’t be surprised to know that I am actually there for the food, ha! I love seeing the trending recipes and making my own version of them. We loved the tiktok pancake cereal recipe but did not care for the baked feta pasta!
You know I love pasta in all forms, pasta salad, hot pasta, cold noodles, but chips were new for me! I wasn’t sure if I would like my pasta crispy but it was better than I expected! I dipped it in both marinara sauce and a mixture of balsamic and ricotta cheese and both were really good!
What type of pasta to use for air fryer pasta chips?
So I watched all the tiktok pasta chip recipe videos and learned some important things- the type of pasta matters! Rigatoni seemed to cook too fast, elbows were way too small, and spaghetti was just gross. Bowties are the perfect noodle for this recipe! The ends get nice and crispy and provide the perfect flat surface area for dipping! The thicker middle section retains some of that pasta texture, which is perfect!
Best Air Fryer Recipes
At this point, I’ll try almost anything in my air fryer. Some of our favorites are the pepperoni pizza egg rolls, birthday cake donuts, and air fryer crunchy beef tacos! As long as it isn’t a liquid, I will definitely put it in the air fryer.
