This is another recipe from Ruth Reichl's book "Comfort Me With Apples". When Ruth Reichl was a food critic, she often ate at Danny Kaye's house. She said he was an exceptional cook. She never asked him for any of his recipes but she loved this pasta so much, she tried to make it herself. She said it took her a long time to perfect the recipe. She also said that it isn't as good as Danny Kaye's - nothing could be - but it's the closest she's been able to come.
