We are not really trend followers... unless it involves food. So any trend involving pasta gets our total attention. TikTok content creator @mezzettaofficial shows us a new twist on the pasta chip trend. These soft little pillows of goodness are about to become everyone's new favorite snack.

Seriously, once you see this recipe for crispy air fryer gnocchi, it'll be part of your arsenal forever.

We'd love those little potato gnocchi any way you’d like to serve them to us. The soft pillowy centers with the crunchy outsides make us so happy! This chip version is no exception, and we think they look absolutely sensational! This easy recipe takes less than 5 minutes to prep and uses one package of store-bought gnocchi, not that you couldn’t make your own, if you’re feeling motivated. Stir the gnocchi together with 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, and 1/2 tsp salt. Air fry for 20-25 minutes and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan, and serve with tomato sauce for dipping. Nom, nom, nom. It sure doesn’t get much easier than that!

This simple recipe looks so sophisticated, but we'll be the only ones that know it’s so easy! Viewers were entertained by this appetizer idea, and @Koutaro commented, “These are Italian tater tots bro.” So funny, we guess that’s true! Viewer @Rachel added, “This is beauty.” We agree with that assertion completely!

We have no doubt that this recipe will make a terrific party or game day appetizer. It's definitely time to give this a try!
