Vermicelli (English pronunciation: /?v?rm?'t??li/, Italian: [ve?mi't??l?i], lit., "little worms") is a type of pasta, round in section and somewhat thinner than spaghetti. Vermicelloni (/?v?rm?t??'lo?ni/ "thick vermicelli") is less common, and about the same size as fedelini (also hard to find). Both are thinner than spaghettini ("thin spaghetti").
