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.

Вермішель Is the word i would hear... Used by most people to describe whatever noodles

Makaron to me is too close to French Macarons ....

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