Name that pasta

I shop at Costco. I buy pasta. It comes in a package with six bags - two each, of three different shapes of pasta.

I really don't pay much attention to what shape it is... who really cares? It all tastes the same.

The last time I bought pasta they had a new kind, labelled "capelletti". I don't speak Italian. I'm guessing it means "little caps" or something.

But there was something familiar looking about it. In a kind of funny... or odd... or disturbing way. I didn't make the connection until we opened the second bag, and then something in my memory clicked.

Does this pasta look familiar to you?

I don't want to be crude, but I'll give you a hint:

Parents of little boys who've had a certain "procedure" may catch the resemblance.
