Pasta & Sauerkraut - why not?
February 21st, 2020 | main dishes
The sauerkraut classic from Max and Moritz – who doesn’t know it? My recipe for sauerkraut rolls, however, doesn’t have much to do with the hearty, heavy and “typically German” side dish of knuckle and meat loaf. Homemade pasta dough wraps the vitamin-packed sauerkraut – and if you leave out the bacon, it’ll even be vegetarian!
Sauerkraut always evokes memories of my grandmother from the Odenwald in the south of Hesse. She always had a large, gray clay pot in her cellars in which she stored cabbage as sauerkraut, a supply for the whole winter. We loved this sauerkraut! It was served with salted ribs, pork sausage or meat loaf. It tasted much, much better than the canned cabbage.
For years I have also filled a large clay pot with cabbage for lactic acid fermentation. Somehow I stopped doing this. For this autumn I have just noted it on the calendar. Who knows, maybe I can do it again. I will report…
My grandmother would hardly have combined pasta with sauerkraut. The Odenwald cuisine was hearty and simple. What would she have said about the gratinated sauerkraut rolls?

According to the motto „rough shell – delicious core“ I show you today a recipe for salsify baked in the oven with a blood orange hollandaise.read more
