Literature & Lore
“Cappello” in Italian means “hat”; “cappelletto” is a little hat. “Cappelletti” is the plural, meaning “little hats”. Note: both “hat” and the pasta in Italian are spelled “Cappell”, with two p’s. It is a common mistake to mix the word for hat, “cappello”, with the Italian word for “hair”, which is “capello”, with just one p.
