Pasta using yeast?

has anyone heard of a recipe that uses yeast?
Just reading a book (Patricia Cornwall) and mentions making pasta using yeast. got me curious if it actually exists, or if she doesn't know how to make pasta.

I haven't heard of it, but a quick search came up with this:

thanks for that, it seemed odd to me, but figured she must have had something to go off. It was a lasagne, and not sure what else she used for the pasta, but the rest did make sense (olive oil, flour and can't remember what else).

You'd end up with bread. Pasta shouldn't rise, you want the right texture and boiled yeast pasta would be like wet cake.
