- n. an extremely fine pasta thinner than vermicelli.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Anamika's last word -- the one that guaranteed her a spot in the 11-person final round -- was "fedelini".
No worries though, there was only one other thing in the list of pastas that looked interesting – fedelini with sauteed scallops, lump crab meat, and garlic white wine sauce.
I didn’t want to burden her with a question about what the hell fedelini is.
