What you have in your stomach blocks paranormal attacks/magical attacks. Pasta acts like a shock absorber,
absorbing all of the magical energy rather than your body.
Different forms of pasta are effective in different ways.
Angel Hair is the most effective because of it's thinness. The more turns and circles the pasta makes, the more it
absorbs magical energies.
All the forms of italian pasta have specific defensive qualities vis-a-vis a magical attack. Sometimes having a rare
form of pasta provides extra defense because the people attacking you won't know what kind of pasta it is.
In a similar way, rice, polenta and quinoa protect against magial attacks.
