ÄlplermagroneThe name doesn't translate perfectly into English. Magrone is of course macaroni, but Älpler doesn't only refer to the mountains and the people who live there, but more specifically to the men who would go up into the high pastures with the cows every summer. They had plenty of milk and cheese available to make this rich and delicious dish. This is traditionally serverd with fried onions on top and apple slices or sauce on the side. The cooking time is approximate. You can saute your onions while cooking the macaroni. A straight tubular pasta is what is commonly used penne, mostaccioli or rigatoni, would all work well.
