Air Fryer Pasta Chips with Whipped Marinara Dip

Eva Amurri shares a recipe for Air Fryer Pasta Chips with Whipped Marinara Dip

I’m not one to stick my nose up at a viral trend, and the newest Pasta Chips trend had me perplexed. I will go on record as saying that I am a pasta-lover extraordinaire. As an Italian girl, my blood is definitely partially made up of liquid pasta. It’s just the meal that I feel most comfortable eating, and that satisfies me no matter WHAT it’s made with.

Improving on pasta just seems like a losing game. But once I watched some videos it was clear that the joy of Air Fryer Pasta Chips is in the fact that pasta becomes a party snack! Highly shareable, no fork needed, and cuter than chips. Well, in my humble opinion, anyway, LOL. All you need is pasta and an air fryer! Plus a few herbs and some extra virgin olive oil.

I’ve also included a recipe for a whipped marinara dip that I made for my pasta chips and ended up LOVING. It’s a nice compliment to the crunchy pasta! Ultimately, I ended up liking the pasta chips, but it might just be because I love pasta. LOL. Full disclosure, not all of my kids liked these. Marlowe was a little confused and ended up not being a fan. Major ate them happily, and Mateo eats everything that’s not nailed down. Ha!

Let me know in the comments below if you ended up trying these Air Fryer Pasta Chips and if you liked them!

Step by Step: Pasta Chips…

Step 1

Cook Pasta

Begin by preheating your air fryer to 350º F. Meanwhile, cook the pasta as per package directions, until al dente. 

Step 2

Mix

Drain the pasta and add to a large mixing bowl, and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together the Olive Oil, Italian Seasoning Blend, Salt, Pepper, and Red Pepper Flakes (if using) and set aside. 

Step 3

Combine

Add the spices from the small bowl to the large bowl with the pasta, and toss together until well coated and combined. 

Step 4

Air Fry

Once the air fryer is full heated, place the pasta in the air fryer basket in batches. You don’t want them too packed in there. (I made my batch of chips in thirds.) Air fry for 10 minutes per batch. Halfway through cooking each batch, open the fryer basket, and carefully shake it to redistribute the chips. 

Step 5

Serve

When each batch is done, dump the pasta chips into a serving bowl. Repeat until finished and enjoy immediately!

Step by Step: Whipped Marinara Dip…

Step 1

Blend

Place all the ingredients into a blender, and pulse well until combined. 

Step 3

Serve

Serve at room temperature, or slightly warmed. Enjoy!
