Little worms pasta is called Vermicelli that means little worms in English.

Vermicelli is a long and very thin pasta and in Italy the vermicelli pasta is thicker than regular spaghetti but in the USA the pasta shape of vermicelli is thinner.

Vermicelli is a traditional type of pasta round in section similar to spaghetti.

In English-speaking regions it is usually thinner than spaghetti, while in Italy it is thicker.

If you're in the U.S., vermicelli is basically a thinner version of spaghetti, meaning that it is best served with a simple tomato sauce or an oil-based sauce like garlic and olive oil.

In general, the thinner your pasta, the lighter the sauce should be.

Italian vermicelli consists of durum wheat semolina and water (and sometimes eggs).

The ingredients form a pasta dough, then that dough is fed and pressed through the die to make long strands.

Angel hair pasta is similar to vermicelli pasta so you can use angel hair pasta as a quick substitute in recipes that call for heavy seasoning and spices as it's the closest in size, shape, and texture, though the flavor will be distinctly nuttier.

One serving of vermicelli contains significantly lower calories than other pasta, noodles and rice varieties.

Additionally, it is low in fat and high in fiber, which helps in keeping you full for longer periods, reducing the need for snacking between meals.
