Maultaschen resembles ravioli, but with a German twist. The large pasta is usually stuffed with meat, spinach, bread crumbs and onions (though vegetarian options are also available). It’s often simmered in a dark broth or served with butter and onions with potato salad on the side. The old story goes that, because meat was prohibited by God on certain days, the people came up with idea to stuff the meat into the pasta dough, thus making it possible to eat meat without God knowing.
