Author Notes: Made from buckwheat flour, these noodle are entirely gluten-free and relatively simple to prepare. The prep time of the squash is well worth the wait because its flavor mingles so effortlessly with the persimmon. Better yet, the flavors deepen with time, making the perfect leftovers. - Gina Topley
