Cook Time 25 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 8 oz. uncooked bowtie pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Homemade or store-bought marinara sauce, for serving


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. 
  • Drain pasta and add it to a bowl. Drizzle it with the olive oil, then sprinkle it with the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese and toss to combine.

To cook the pasta chips in the oven:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Arrange the pasta in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pasta chips from the oven and serve them with marinara for dipping.

To cook the pasta chips in an air fryer:

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Add a portion of the pasta chips to the air fryer and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, stopping and shaking the basket two times. (Note: The pasta does not have to be in a single layer, however it's important to stop the air fryer and shake the basket to ensure the chips don't stick together.)
  • Remove the pasta chips from the air fryer and serve them with marinara for dipping.
