Origin: (see Italian etymology below)
a variety or macaroni made in tubes of small diameter
Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical pasta of Italian and Sicilian origin. Spaghetti is made of semolina or flour and water. Italian dried spaghetti is made from durum wheat semolina, but outside of Italy and Sicily it may be made with other kinds of flour. Traditionally, most spaghetti was 50 cm long, but shorter lengths gained in popularity during the latter half of the 20th century and now spaghetti is most commonly available in 25–30 cm lengths. A variety of pasta dishes are based on it, from spaghetti alla Carbonara or garlic and oil to a spaghetti with tomato sauce, meat and other sauces. Spaghetti is the plural form of the Italian word spaghetto, which is a diminutive of spago, meaning "thin string" or "twine".
The Foolish Dictionary, by Gideon Wurdz
A table-dish eaten only by Italians and jugglers. From Lat. _spadix_, branch, or fork, and _gestamen_, burden. A burden for the fork.
