Everyone and his brother knows and loves pasta, and thinks that it’s a food exclusive to Italy or Italian restaurants. But did you know that Germany has its own delicious kind of pasta? Called Maultaschen, it originated in the southwestern part of Germany known as Swabia. Maultauschen is a kind of ravioli traditionally filled with minced meat, herbs, spinach, and breadcrumbs. There’s a vegetarian version that you can order at this restaurant, filled with sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese, or spinach and mozzarella. In this simple, inexpensive, specialty restaurant, the Maultaschen is freshly prepared and served either in a broth or browned in butter. It couldn’t be simpler or tastier, and it’s a great way to expand your pasta repertoire.
