More helpful tips for you.
- It is important that you remember to shake the air fryer basket a few times while the pasta is air frying. This will help keep the pasta from sticking to one another and allow the pasta to bake evenly.
- Did I mention that you can make this recipe low in carbs? Make these as low carb air fryer chips by using low carb pasta. You should keep an eye on the pasta as it bakes as it may not bake exactly like regular pasta depending on the ingredients that went into the low carb pasta.
- Cooking the pasta just under the time actually needed, or al dente, is sometimes done as some pasta is easier to bite into when air fried by doing this. You can cook you pasta either just underdone or as instructed, depending on your preferences.
