The Air Fryer Pasta Bake Recipe That is Blowing Up on TikTok

Just when you think you’ve mastered the art of air frying anything and everything, along comes a TikTok user with a meal idea you couldn’t have dreamed up in your wildest dreams. Best yet, it only contains 5 budget-friendly ingredients, is ready in 20 minutes and it’s sure to be a winner with the kids!

Air Fryer Girl UK shared her unique meal creation earlier this month on TikTok and it soon went viral with people especially impressed with her idea to make meatballs from cutting up sausages and rolling them into balls.

“Why have I never thought to make meatballs this way? I always pay more for ready rolled,” one person commented on her video.

After cooking the little balls of meaty goodness in her Ninja Air Fryer, @airfryergirlUK for 10 minutes on 190°C, and giving them a little shake halfway through so that all sides were browned, she adds them to a super handy looking silicone bowl. She then adds in the rest of the ingredients – cooked pasta, a jar of tomato and mascarpone pasta sauce, some peas, and ‘lots of cheese.’ and places it back into the air fryer for a further 10 minutes.

@airfryergirluk Love a bit of pasta bake and great for a leftovers lunch! #airfryermaster #airfryertiktok #airfryerrecipe #lunch #lunchbox #lunchtime #pasta #pastatiktok #pastarecipe #pastabake #dinner #dinnerideas #dinnertime ♬ I’m Good (Blue) – Cupido

The result? A pretty delicious looking meatball pasta bake with a golden brown crunchy top! Perfect for those can’t-be-arsed-to-cook nights!

We are definitely going to give this a try! Although we’re a little baffled by the thawing of the peas in hot water. Personally we’d probably skip that step and bung them in frozen!
