|2 quarts Canola Oil (for frying)|
|1/2 cup Powdered Sugar or Cinnamon Sugar|
Sweet Fried Pasta Dough - Pasta Fritta Italian Frappe Directions
Cut each pasta sheet in half width-wise.
Cut each half of the pasta sheets into 3 strips, then into 4 squares per strip.
Cut each square in half diagonally to create pasta triangles that are easy to eat. (approx. 48 triangles per pasta sheet)
Heat the oil to 350 degrees in a medium-sized pot or a deep fryer kettle.
When the oil is at the correct temperature, drop 5-6 pasta triangles into the pot and stir around gently with metal tongs or a basket strainer.
Allow the pasta chips to bubble slightly and turn golden brown, about 45 seconds per side.
Remove the pasta chips from the oil and allow them to drain on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels.
Repeat the frying steps for the remainder of the pasta triangles.
Cool the pasta chips and use in the recipe or store them in a metal tin for 2-3 days.
Once the pasta cools slightly, dust liberally with powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar.
Serve as dessert or a sweet snack.
