“Macaroni is just tube spaghetti”

Macaroni has been compared to spaghetti.

“Anything can be described as different types of spaghetti. Lasagna is flat spaghetti. Macaroni is tube spaghetti” was posted on Twitter by Shibi! on February 14, 2014. “Macaroni is just tube spaghetti” was posted on Twitter by JonTron on July 2, 2020, and this tweet went viral.


Wikipedia: Macaroni
Macaroni (/ˌmækəˈroʊni/, Italian: maccheroni) is dry pasta shaped like narrow tubes. Made with durum wheat, macaroni is commonly cut in short lengths; curved macaroni may be referred to as elbow macaroni. Some home machines can make macaroni shapes, but like most pasta, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion. The curved shape is created by different speeds of extrusion on opposite sides of the pasta tube as it comes out of the machine.

Wikipedia: Spaghetti
Spaghetti (Italian: [spaˈɡetti]) is a long, thin, solid, cylindrical noodle pasta. It is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. Like other pasta, spaghetti is made of milled wheat and water and sometimes enriched with vitamins and minerals. Italian spaghetti is typically made from durum wheat semolina.
