Persimmons on your pasta.

I once ate pasta with a delicious persimmon + tomato marinara. I can't find any persimmon marinara recipes for it online. How can I recreate it?

I know it contained tomatoes, persimmons, olive oil, fresh basil. I make my own tomato sauce often, so that part is pretty easy. (This usually consists of Pomi tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, basil, a touch of sugar.) I just don't know how I should incorporate the persimmons or how to cook with them in general. I know they're very sweet and want to get the flavor without overdoing it on sweetness.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
