I was thinking of { tIr SIrghHom} -etto/-etti is one of the diminutive
suffixes in Italian.
{tera' tIr qaghqoq} is more apt for "vermicelli", a different kind of
pasta :) (all right, they are thicker spaghetti). Also -elli is
another diminutive...
On the other hand I am not sure a Klingon would bother to make a
distinction between all of the varieties of pasta/noodles.
If Klingons were made aware of pasta when visiting Earth, they may
simply use a transliteration, but who knows, maybe spaghetti were
invented on {Qo'noS} really, and Italians simply copied them!
