These are one of my favorite snacks!  Yes, they are fried, yes they are salty, yes they are delicious, and yes, they are addictive!  My Grandmother made a version of these and me and my siblings always loved them!  So how do you make these delectable treats you ask?  They are so simple!  Here you go:

Bowtie Pasta Crunchies

What you’ll need:

1 lb. bowtie pasta

the juice of 1 lemon

a handful of Follow Your Heart parmesan cheese (optional)

kosher salt to taste

What you’ll do:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add in the bowties and a handful of salt.  Cook halfway.  Drain.


Working in batches, transfer some bowties into about 1/2 cup hot vegetable oil.


When the edges get golden, flip.  Remove once golden on both sides.  This process is very fast.  Careful not to burn yourself : )

When they are golden remove from the pan and immediately toss with some salt, lemon and parmesan.  Repeat the process till they are all fried.

These can be served immediately or within a couple days.
