Servings 4


  • 16 ounces bowtie pasta
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

  • Marinara sauce to serve


  • Cook the pasta in salted boiling water according to the package directions.
  • Drain the pasta and run it under cold water. Shake out as much water as possible.
  • Spread the pasta out on paper towels and pat it dry.
  • Add the pasta to a large bowl and spray it with 2 pumps of olive oil spray. Add the salt and toss to combine.
  • Transfer the pasta to the air fryer, spread out in an even layer and cook at 400F for 10-12 minutes, or until crisp.
  • Sprinkle the parmesan cheese and garlic powder over the crispy pasta and toss to combine.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature, with marinara sauce on the side.
  • Store any leftover pasta chips in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days.


  • I used bowtie pasta, but feel free to use any shape you like! Just make sure to cook the pasta to al dente following the instructions on the box.
  • I opted for an olive oil spray but any kind of cooking spray will work-- just making sure you’re using a cooking oil spray, not a non-stick baking spray.
  • Kosher salt is going to make the chips salty and delicious!
  • Parmesan cheese is what makes these chips garlic parmesan flavored. For a dairy-free option, feel free to swap nutritional yeast or a dairy-free parmesan substitute.
  • Garlic powder is great in this recipe because it coats the pasta evenly-- I don’t recommend using fresh garlic as it can be overpowering.
