2021 has been a really great year for new pasta trends on TikTok, and this social media platform recently gave us another one. Following the success of baked feta pasta to honeycomb pasta, pasta chips are taking the world by storm right now.

It would be easy to blame the rise of this trend on TikTok’s love for pasta, but there’s actually something else behind it. Pasta chips started going viral because it was a new way to use the air fryer, one of the most popular kitchen tools of the year.

If TikTok convinced you to buy an air fryer, you can use it to transform pasta noodles into crispy chips in no time. Once you boiled your pasta and topped it with oil and other seasonings, you’re only supposed to place them inside your air fryer to get crispy chips, usually at 400°F.

Your air fryer will do all the hard work, and you’ll be left with a tasty snack at the end. If eating pasta chips on their own simply doesn’t do it for you, serving it with dips of your choice is always an option. Check out some of the best TikTok recipes for this tasty snack, fire up your air fryer, and get ready to serve some pasta chips at your next dinner party.
