One of TikTok's most viral food trends is pasta chips, baked in the oven or air-fried until insanely crunchy. Like, be-careful-you-don't-break-a-tooth crunchy. Our twist uses pasta salad–inspired flavors instead of a traditional tomato sauce, with a cheesy, herby coating on the chips and a creamy, pepperoncini and vinegar-spiked dip. Bring it outside to share with friends or eat by the handful while watching TV—it'll be your new favorite snack either way.
6 ounces bowtie pasta (or shape of your choice), cooked and drained very well
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
½ teaspoon chile flakes, plus more for garnish
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
⅔ cup sour cream
⅓ cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar, or more to taste
2 tablespoons finely chopped pepperoncini peppers, plus more for garnish
+ Fresh sliced scallions or chives, or chopped fresh oregano, for garnish
The most satisfying salad you'll ever have.
Mom’s taters are my all-time favorite.
