Crunchy Batwings

This is a fun substitute for the more expected potato chips. Once cool, store these in an airtight tin to keep them crisp.

Gooseberry Patch OCTOBER 2011

  • Yield: 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cup bowtie pasta, uncooked
  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • Oil for deep frying

Preparation

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and blot pasta dry with paper towels.

Combine cornmeal and Cajun seasoning in a large bowl. Toss pasta, a handful at a time, in cornmeal mixture to coat; shake off excess.

Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat to 375°. Fry pasta, in batches, 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Store pasta snacks up to a week in an airtight container.
