Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 8-10 minutes Total Time: 18-20 minutes Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 oz (about 225g) pasta (rigatoni, penne, or similar shape)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • Marinara sauce or ranch dressing for dipping (optional)


  1. Cook the Pasta:
    • Boil the pasta according to package instructions until it’s al dente. Drain and rinse it under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Season the Pasta:
    • In a large mixing bowl, toss the cooked and cooled pasta with olive oil until all pieces are evenly coated.

    • In a separate bowl, mix together the grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and paprika (if using).

  5. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for a few minutes.
  6. Air Fry the Pasta:
    • Place the seasoned pasta in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
    • Cook for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time to ensure even crisping. Keep an eye on them as cooking times may vary based on your air fryer model.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once the pasta chips are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the air fryer.
    • Allow them to cool for a minute or two before serving.
    • Optionally, serve with marinara sauce or ranch dressing for dipping.
