All About the Trend

Made popular by TikTok, the first rendition of the now-famous, pasta chips were originally created by Gourmet food entrepreneur Jerry Bello created Pasta Chips after a trip through the Tuscan countryside. But how did pasta chips come to be a viral foodie trend? One of the first TikTok posts seems to have come from food blogger Emily Chan, also known as @bostonfoodgram, who posted her video all the way back in April of this year.

Believe it or not, the pasta chip trend is actually a great way to conjure up a healthy snack – especially if you’re using gluten-free noodles! Since gluten-free pasta chips are often made from chickpea noodles, they’re actually filled with protein and fiber. This recipe uses just a little bit of oil and cheese, making it the perfect thing to satisfy your midnight cravings or even just to enjoy as a healthy snack throughout the day.

The Pasta chips Recipe

Now that you know all about the trend – and feel a lil’ less guilty about munching on these yummy snacks, let’s learn how to make them! Below are the ingredients and steps you need to take to whip up this scrumptious snack.


  • Pasta: You can use any pasta of choice. Think of something long and large that you can grab with your fingers and dip. Rigatoni, bowtie, and penne are popular choices.
  • Olive oil: After cooking the pasta, you’ll want to toss it in just a tablespoon of olive oil to help the pasta chips get crispy in the air fryer.
  • Parmesan cheese: While this is optional, the cheese adds great flavor and gets crispy in the air fryer as well. You can think about soft cheeses that grate well like Gouda or fontina.
  • Spices: You can use any spices you’d like. For an Italian-inspired flavor, try garlic powder and Italian seasoning or oregano.
  • Dip ingredients: Crumbled feta cheese, Greek yogurt, garlic, and olive oil. You can swap with any other dip you’d like!


  • Cook that pasta al dente in a pot of heavily salted water.
  • Drain the pasta and transfer it to a large mixing bowl or back into the pot.
  • Add olive oil, parmesan cheese and the spices you’re using.
  • Toss well to combine to make sure the pasta is coated with the oil, cheese, and spices.
  • Air fry until golden and crispy, shaking the basket a few times.
  • Remove from the air fryer and allow to cool slightly before enjoying!
