Atraditional German dish, maultaschen is a pasta dough that encloses traditional fillings such as minced or smoked meat, spinach, bread crumbs and onions with herbs and spices.

Since Christians are encouraged to abstain from meat during Lent, maultaschen had meat concealed in the pasta dough as if to say what cannot be seen can be eaten.
