Sometimes you’ll finish a massive bowl of pasta and there’ll be a lone strand of pasta left clinging to the edge of the bowl. Have you ever wondered what that noodle is called? Well, I’m here to give you some incredibly valuable information – that one trivia answer that’ll show-off your impressively comprehensive knowledge of word forms: The singular form of spaghetti is spaghetto. Similarly, ravioli is raviolo, confetti is confetto, and graffiti is graffito. These words all share an Italian origin. Although they’re commonplace terms for Italians, the rest of the world, especially those on Twitter, were blown away upon discovering the true name of that lone noodle. Maybe this includes you, and if so, I’m glad you learned something new.
