World Pasta Day
Today is World Pasta Day! Here at FamilySkiNews.com, we’re celebrating with a steaming pot of Alpine Macaroni, Swiss Macaroni cheese with a twist, otherwise known as Älplermagronen (Herdsmen’s Macaroni) – cheap, hearty, nourishing… ideal for shepherds on the Alp and perfect for family tea tonight!
Let’s face it, whose kids don’t love pasta?…
You can check out our recipe for Alpine Macaroni, straight from our favourite macaroni restaurant, Flühmatt, high above the Swiss resort of Engelberg, by clicking HERE.
What’s more, it’s easy enough for your kids to make themselves, with your guidance.
But remember, the secret of a good Alpine Macaroni is that it’s best served with a generous dollop of Swiss apple purée (Apfelmus). Not essential but highly recommended! What a perfect way to use up some of those autumn windfalls. You’ll find that recipe HERE.
Enjoy! Or as they say in Switzerland , En Guete!
You can find this and more Alpine recipes on our website in our dedicated Alpine Cuisine section, ranging from nourishing breakfasts to steaming soups, from alpine aperitifs to Swiss mountain ice-cream….
