"This is one insanely simple and deeply satisfying pasta dish. It's also totally New York City, and I love that. It's equally as great if you're sitting at a table at one of the Frankies or if you're eating it ice-cold from a to-go box straight out of the fridge at 3:30 a.m., while using your fingers as utensils."
