Place your pasta rings on a baking sheet covered with paper and let them rise another 30 to 45 minutes
Heat the oil. Lower the dough squares, 3-4 at a time, into the hot oil. As soon as the beignets puff up, use tongs or a kitchen spider to gently flip them over. Fry until golden brown on both sides, flipping as needed, 2-3 minutes more. Transfer the beignets to a paper towel–lined plate.
