If it is anything like in Russian (which, I suspect, is highly likely), the words макарони when used in speech refers to a large variety of noodle-spaghetti-macaroni-pasta-like stuff. In English, however, macaroni is a relatively narrow category of pasta.

Doesn't "Are you eating pasta?" work as a correct translation?
