Air Fryer Pasta Snacks with a Smoky Dip

Ingredients . . .

For the pasta:

  • 150g Rigatoni pasta tubes
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 50g Applewood® Wedge, grated

For the Applewood® dip:

  • 100g light mayonnaise
  • 50g Applewood®, grated
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp dried herbs, such as chives, parsley or oregano

Method . . .

  • Cook the rigatoni in boiling salted water until tender. Drain.
  • Pour the cooked pasta into a mixing bowl and add the oil, garlic salt, dried parsley and smoked paprika. Mix well until everything is well coated. Sprinkle over the grated Applewood® and stir through the seasoned pasta.
  • Pour the pasta into the air fryer basket and cook at 200C for 12-14 minutes, shaking (if required) halfway through. The pasta is ready when it’s golden brown and crisp. Pour the cooked pasta onto kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
  • To make the Applewood® Dip, simply combine the ingredients in a small microwavable bowl and heat for 45 seconds on high power. Remove, stir and heat for a further 30-45 seconds until the Applewood® has melted. Stir and season with salt and pepper before serving with the air fried pasta snacks. Enjoy!
