Looking for a fun snack to serve during football season?  These Italian Herb Baked Lasagna Chips are a unique (and tasty) addition to the appetizer menu!We love pasta in all forms here in this house.  From a traditional spaghetti and meatballs to a baked ziti, pasta nights are always something we look forward to.  (I’d be ashamed to admit the number of different types of pasta we keep on hand in our pantry!)  However, this recipe for Baked Lasagna Chips is a bit different.  Instead of serving pasta as a meal, you can totally turn that pasta into a fun snack.  We served these lasagna chips with a jar of marinara sauce, and it didn’t take long before that pile of pasta chips was reduced down to just a few crumbs!

Looking for a fun snack to serve during football season?  These Italian Herb Baked Lasagna Chips are a unique (and tasty) addition to the appetizer menu!The inspiration for these Italian Herb Baked Lasagna Chips actually goes back a few years.  Several years ago, I made this Spinach Artichoke Dip with Fried Pasta.  The fried pasta took the place of the chips, and it was delicious!  But then I got to thinking.  (Somewhere my wife is yelling, “No.  Don’t do it”  Oftentimes I get myself into trouble when I think too much!)  I started wondering if I could make a baked version of those fried pasta “chips.”  The ruling?  Sure enough!  And the baked version is pretty darned delicious!

For these baked lasagna chips, you do need to boil the pasta.  Overall, this is a pretty darned easy recipe, though.  Plus, it’s unique, so it’s sure to be a hit if you serve these at a party…or while watching football.  In fact, if you make these for a football-watching party, then make a double batch.  You’ll need ’em!

I chose to go with Italian seasonings and Parmesan cheese here for these chips.  However, you could easily mix this up and go with other flavors.  What about using a steakhouse rub like Montreal seasoning and then serving the chips with BBQ sauce?  Or you could go with Greek seasonings (dill and lemon zest!) and then serve this one up with a batch of tzatziki sauce.

    1. These pasta chips are unique for sure, but they’re also pretty fun! And you could go in so many different directions with the flavors + dip, too. Thanks, Alex! 🙂

    If this is not a brilliant idea, I don’t know what is! They look seriously addictive, David! And love that you shared on Friday, just in time for the weekend 🙂 Have a good one, my friend! P.S. if I did look down and they were gone, I’d be sad 😉

    1. Haha! I admit that pasta is a unique “chip,” but man these were so good! And they’re perfect for weekend snacking. Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving, my friend!

  2. Hi David! What a unique appetizer! Who would have thought you could bake lasagna chips? Great recipe my friend. I’m making your malfatti recipe on Sunday, Gary loves that dish. Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Oooo…I hope the malfatti turned out well yesterday, Dorothy! I love that recipe! And I truly hope it made Gary happy. 🙂

      In other news, flat pasta does indeed work in “chip form.” Super unique, but pretty cool, too! And I love all of the different seasoning/dip ideas…I’ll have to try some other flavors here soon. Thanks so much, my friend!

    1. Yes! These “chips” are great gameday food. Super unique, so that alone is worth something. And I’m loving all of the different seasoning/dip combination ideas. I’ll have to try some of those other flavors here soon. I love gameday food! Thanks, Matt!

    We love pasta nights here too. If Lynne had her way it would be pasta night every single night!! And if she sees these she’ll have me making them so she can take them to work and enjoy pasta snacks all day long. Ha ha! They look great David. An excellent snack for sharing.

    1. I say you leave this post up on the computer sometime when Lynne is around…just to get her reaction. 🙂 Who would’ve thought pasta could be used to make “chips”? But they’re a fun one for sure! Thanks, Neil!

    1. Oh man, if your daughter loves pasta, then she’s going to lose her mind at the thought of these chips! I hope she loves these, too! 🙂

    I’m a huge fan of pasta myself, and I’ve experienced with it a lot (I still believe my visa would be denied if the Italian consulate finds my recipe where I added lavender haha). But this idea… WOW I’m speechless! I would never have thought that you can turn lasagna noodles into delicious chips. That’s a perfect snacking material for upcoming holidays!

    1. Haha! I remember many of your fun and unique pasta dishes over the years, Ben. Now I get to add one to the mix, too! These pasta “chips” are a fun one for sure. Oh, and happy (belated) Canadian Thanksgiving, my friend! I hope you guys had a good one!

    1. These “chips” really are a fun and unique appetizer idea, Dawn! And there are so many ways to mix up the seasonings + dipping sauce, too. Thanks so much, my friend!

  6. 5 stars
    This is happening immediately. Genius, David!! Love this for game day fare, but also have my eye on it for a Friday night movie snack (instead of our usual popcorn).

    1. Yup, this would indeed be a fun snack for Friday movie night. To be fair, any appetizer that works for game day would also be great for movie nights, too! I’m loving all the ways you can mix up the seasonings + dips for these fun “chips.” Thanks, Marissa!

    Yikes am ashamed to say I currently don’t have any pasta at home – I need to change that and grab some on my way home because I am in a chips phase and baked pasta chips loaded with herbs has me drooling!
    P.S. if you thinking ends with these pasta chips on the table – you gotta put on your thinking cap and do more of it – eh?! 🙂

    1. Or you can just swing by our place, Shashi! We always have a crazy assortment of pastas in our pantry. (Partly because whenever I see a different pasta shape in the store, I just have to buy it!)

      P.S. Well said, my friend!

    David, these baked lasagna chips look so good! My kids would definitely devour these! I was just thinking that tonight’s dinner requires something with tomato sauce and cheese. These would really hit the spot!

    1. I love dinners with tomato sauce and cheese! Such a classic combination of comfort food right there. So these “chips” are a really fun way to mix things up, and I’m loving all of the different ideas for mixing up the seasonings/dips. Thanks so much, Kelly!

  9. This is such an interesting recipe idea! Never heard of turning pasta into chips, and now I just might have to try it. I’m with you, we’re pasta people too. I like my carbs! In fact, I’m planning on doing pasta with a fresh tomato sauce for dinner tonight 🙂
