What is Ditalini Pasta?

Ditalini are small tubular pasta mostly used in soups and sometimes in salads. The name Ditalini means “little thimbles”

The are called little thimbles because they resemble a thimble (a small cover, made of metal or plastic, worn to protect the finger that pushes the needle when sewing).

Ditalini is typically used in the Italian soup, ‘pasta e fagioli’ (pasta and beans) but can be used in other soups like minestrone or in this Left-over Turkey Soup.

They are also great in salads.

They may also be referred to as tubettini or salad macaroni.
