The pasta that starts with D is Ditalini pasta which is shaped like a small tube and is also known as tubettini.

The tiny short pastas are often used in soups such as minestrone soup of Italian origin that is made with vegetables as well as beans, celery, onions, stock, carrots, croutons and tomatoes.

Ditalini, also referred to as tubettini, is a type of pasta that is shaped like small tubes.

The pasta Ditalini has been described as "thimble-sized" and as "very short macaroni".

In some areas Ditalini pasta is also called "salad macaroni".

Tubetti are a larger variant of tubettini, and resemble small hollow tubes, or short cuts of macaroni.

Tubetti are also longer and wider than both ditali and ditalini, which they are sometimes mistaken for.

Ditalini pasta has ancient origins and is one of the shortest straight-cut types of pasta.

The name derives from the Italian word for “thimble” that inspired its shape.

Over the years, many new variations have been created in different in sizes (ditali, larger, and ditaloni, a lot larger) and in different surfaces.
