Pasta In Germany

A typical German pasta is “Spätzle,” a noodle that is especially popular in the southern regions of Germany, such as Swabia, Bavaria, and the Black Forest area. It is made from a simple dough consisting of eggs, flour, salt, and a little water or milk.

The dough is typically scraped off a wooden cutting board into boiling water where it cooks until it floats to the surface, indicating that it is done.

Once cooked, Spätzle can be served in a variety of ways with many regional variations.

German pasta sauces are typically less tomato-based and feature more cream, cheese, and meat-based sauces reflective of the local taste and agricultural resources.

Spätzle is just one type of pasta/noodle dishes and there are more. German cuisine has also adapted more typical Italian pasta dishes to local tastes and ingredients such as cheeses, meats and root vegetables.

That’s what you’ll find below in this absolutely delicious pasta recipe.
