Alfarian hair pasta was one of the many recipes in Neelix's repertoire. He sometimes served it aboard USS Voyager in the mess hall.
The pasta was made from the hair follicles of a mature Alfarian. Much like an Earth sheep, the hair was harvested during the shedding season in early fall. The pasta was very high in protein. (VOY: "Parturition")
Although Earth foods sometimes use the term "hair" to refer to thin pasta, such as angel hair pasta, the Alfarian version is the only known
literal use of the term.
