Pharaoh's Wheel Noodles

This Italian dish symbolizes the passage of the Jews across the Red Sea. The name recalls how the Pharaoh was crushed beneath his chariot wheel. There are several versions of this, but all include pasta, sauce, salami, and raisins. (Italian Jews make a wonderful goose salami.)
Make your own meat or tomato sauce, or follow the stuffing mixture in Georgian Chicken but omit the sweet spices and almonds, and instead add 4 peeled tomatoes or enough tomato sauce to make more liquid.
This dish tastes very special, thanks to the raisins and pine nuts, yet all the ingredients are precooked or need no additional cooking, so it is also simple and quick to prepare.

ingredients

serves 6
1 package (8 ounces) egg noodles, cooked until al dente
2 cups Italian meat sauce
8 ounces kosher salami, thinly sliced
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pine nuts (pignolis)

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. Grease a 2-quart round, glass baking dish. Arrange a layer of cooked noodles in the dish, then pour some of the sauce over them.

3. Arrange a ring of salami round the edge of the dish, and sprinkle some raisins and pine nuts in the center.

4. Add another layer of pasta and repeat the sauce, salami, raisins, and pine nuts. Continue layering until all the ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of salami.

5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until heated through.

6. Serve immediately.
