Pasta Crisps (Chips)
Serves 2 to 3
This pasta recipe is a nice change from the usual potato or tortilla chips. I created it when I had some plain cooked bowtie noodles leftover. Since then, I have made it from scratch using whole wheat pasta for a nutritional boost. Either way, it makes a quick, easy and crunchy snack or side dish for sandwiches. Make the recipe in any amount desired.
- 2 cups cooked bowties (farfalle) or other short cut noodles
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 400° F. Place the noodles in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and toss to coat. Place on a baking sheet in one layer and bake until lightly crisp and golden, about 20 minutes, being careful not to let them get too hard. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and optional Parmesan cheese. Serve hot, warm or room temperature.
