Preparation

Filling:

For the filling cook the unpeeled potatoes until soft. Peel them while still hot, pass through a fine sieve and let cool. Cut the Speck Alto Adige PGI into cubes, chop the parsley and combine with the potatoes thoroughly, season with salt and pepper. Cook the Maccheroni in salted water until soft, cool them and fill them with the potato-Speck mixture.

Serving suggestion:

Place the filled Maccheroni on a plate, sprinkle it with the butter sauce and briefly grill at a top-heat with chive and the grated alpine cheese “au gratin” in the oven.
