This is a typical noodle dish of Baden-Baden and the Schwaebische region in Germany. The main ingredient is potatoes. Schupfnudeln get their name from the Upper German word "Schupfen", meaning "to shove, push, throw or chuck". They are traditionally hand-made by rolling out potato dough on a board and cutting the dough into noodles. Schupfnudeln, which are a kind of Spaeztle (home-made pasta), are simple and easy to make. They are delicious and they go well with almost anything: roast pork, racks of lamb, bits of bacon, sauerkraut, and any cabbage dishes. I'm posting this recipe in response to a request in German Cooking Forum.
