Cook rigatoni according to package directions. Drain and transfer to large bowl.
To large bowl, add oil and toss rigatoni until well coated. Add Parmesan, hot sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper; toss to coat.
Transfer rigatoni mixture to large parchment paper–lined baking sheet and spread in single layer.
Bake, stirring once, for 18 to 22 minutes or until crisp and golden.
Tips: Alternatively, cook rigatoni in batches in the air fryer.
Substitute rigatoni with leftover cooked pasta. Penne, farfalle or even cut lasagna noodles work well.
