Maultaschen. Swabian ravioli.

There are competing theories as to how maultaschen, or 'Swabian ravioli', first came about. One theory holds that the Cistercian monks of Maulbronn Monastery (hence the name maultaschen) were loath to go without meat during Lent. So they concealed the forbidden food from the sight of the Lord by enclosing it in a pasta dough. Hence also the other name for the dish – herrgottsb'scheisserle, or 'Fool the Lord'.
