Legend has it that a resourceful monk at the Maulbronn monastery (by Stuttgart) did not want to refrain from enjoying meat during the fasting period. Therefore he simply mixed the meat with a spinach and vegetable mixture and wrapped it in noodle dough for the purpose of hiding it from God. The Maulbronn Pasta Pillow became popular and was replicated by the country’s house wives.
