Pasta for the doctor

Angel hair pasta was a food originating from Earth. The pasta was in the form of long strands that were very thin, similar to hair.

In 2153, Hoshi Sato brought a plate of angel hair pasta to sickbay for Doctor Phlox, who had been infected with Borg nanoprobes. Phlox refused the meal since eating would accelerate his metabolism, causing the nanoprobes to spread further. Sato left the dish in sickbay in case Phlox changed his mind. (ENT: "Regeneration")

The proper name for angel hair pasta is capellini, which literally means "thin hair."
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 29) described this food as a "thinly extruded grain flour, often seved with a light sauce."
