With more than 500 million views on the social network, it is without a doubt the snack of the summer. If you do not yet know pasta chips, they will certainly invade the tables of your next aperitifs. And they have something to make your mouth water, they taste like pasta and the crunchiness of crisps, what more could you ask for? Sacrilege perhaps for some, we can imagine the Italians rolling their eyes and raising their arms to the sky.
This hybrid snack is therefore the latest food trend straight out of TikTok. The video on the network of American food blogger Yumna Jawad of Feel Good Foodie has already been viewed over 23 million times. And if the sauce takes so well, it’s because the recipe is very simple and accessible to everyone. Since each one posts its culinary realization and its multiple variations. In addition, this snack is considered relatively healthier than crisps thanks to its cooking method. Of course, we can imagine that it is to be consumed in moderation. If even Goop, the blog of Gwyneth Paltrow the healthy pope speaks about it, it is that we must embark on the experience.
Very easy, start by choosing your favorite pasta (rigatoni, penne, fusilli, farfalle…) and cook it as usual. Then season it with olive oil, Parmesan, garlic, aromatic herbs or spices as you wish. Finally, cook them until they are crispy in an airfryer. This cooking technique allows not to use a lot of oil, for example for fries, two teaspoons of oil are enough. If you don’t have such an appliance, the oven will do as well.
We taste the pasta chips with a sauce in which they are dipped. Here again all tastes are in nature, tomato sauce, yogurt or feta sauce, pesto… Treat yourself!
