The natural association with chips is potatoes, but after trying this dish, that may change. The base of this crunchy snack is pasta, enhanced with just the right amount of spices.

Whether it be sporting excitement, evening movie sessions, or meetings with friends, one thing remains constant—the sound of crunching. Chips, crisps, and nuts are standard fare in my home, and pasta joins the list. This doesn't mean I serve a big bowl of raw pasta straight from the package; I turn it into delicious chips, which always tend to draw many hands.

Pasta chips - a simple snack idea

Pasta doesn't necessarily evoke thoughts of a snack, but this recipe will quickly change that. Pasta chips initially cause astonishment, which quickly turns into delight after tasting. You can use leftover pasta from dinner or cook a portion specifically for this dish.

It's simple and delicious because the right spices set the course for the whole snack. I serve the entire thing with pizza sauce, but garlic or BBQ sauce would also work well.

Ingredients:

                                  
  • 200 grams of wave-shaped pasta,
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil,
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano,
  • 1 teaspoon of granulated garlic,
  • 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika,
  • 80 millilitres of grated Parmesan,
  • 50 grams of pizza sauce,
  • parsley.

Preparation:

Step 1: Cook the pasta in salted water according to the package instructions. I usually opt for the wave-shaped type, but more minor twists also work. After cooking, drain it.

Step 2: Transfer the cooked pasta to a bowl. Add dried oregano, granulated garlic, sweet paprika, grated Parmesan, and olive oil, and mix thoroughly to ensure the ingredients evenly coat the pasta.

Step 3: Place the pasta on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put it in an oven preheated to 185°C. Bake for about 15 minutes until the pasta chips are crunchy. Transfer them to a large plate and serve with the sauce. Enjoy!
