If you're looking for a new way to enjoy pasta, then you have to try making these air fryer bow tie pasta chips! It's a fun recipe that's simple to make and is a great snack or appetizer. Plus, they're perfect for using up any leftover pasta you might have.
I like to serve these for movie night or when I have guests over. The hot air of the air fryer makes this easy recipe a delicious crispy snack without using any fat. I've seen some recipes call for adding olive oil but I make mine without that extra ingredient and the end result is an easy snack and all the flavor of your favorite crunchy chips with fewer calories.

This particular recipe was made with a Cosori 6.8 qt air fryer. If you're using a different brand of air fryer, you may need to adjust the cooking time and/or temperature accordingly as not all air fryers cook the same.
We like to eat these fresh but if you don't finish them all the best way to store them is in an airtight container at room temperature (on the countertop) for up to 3 days.
