What do you call one singular strand of spaghetti?

You may never have thought about it because there always tends to be more than one on your plate.

But here's your answer: spaghetto.

Twitter user @caroramsey started the viral discussion with an excerpt from the dictionary and people are now questioning just how well they know their pasta.

Lots of strands? Spaghetti. Just one? Spaghetto.

The Italian language rule also applies to ravioli. It's raviolo if you eat just one.

Cannoli? Cannolo.

And gnocchi? Gnocco.

And now you know.
