Viral Pasta Chips by Nick DiGiovanni

Try this delicious Pasta Chips recipe from Nick DiGiovanni’s new cookbook, Knife Drop.

If you like pasta, you’ll love these. It’s such an easy snack to prepare, and you can pair it with your favorite sauce for dipping! Try marinara, alfredo, pesto, or vodka sauce.


Yield 3 Cups/Prep Time 5 Minutes/ Cook Time 16-24 Minutes

2 cups (150g) dry farfalle pasta

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

2/3 cup (67g) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Kosher salt and freshly ground

Black pepper, to taste

Dipping sauce of choice (optional), to serve


  1. Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the farfalle and cook for 8 to 12 minutes or until al dente. While the pasta cooks, preheat the air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Drain the water and transfer the pasta to a medium bowl. Add the olive oil, Parmesan, salt, and a few generous grinds of pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the mixture to the air fryer basket and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, occasionally shaking the basket to ensure the pieces of pasta don’t stick to one another, and that they achieve an even browning.
  4. Remove the pasta chips from the basket and allow to cool slightly. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, if desired.

Tip: If you don’t use farfalle, choose another pasta shape that will hold a dipping sauce well. Rigatoni is a fun pick.
