Of course, Italians can't survive without pasta, not even in the Alps. There are many local dishes made of pasta, I tried these two:
1. Gnocchi (potato pasta) in sauce of several kinds of cheese (very aromatic and delicious)
2. Pasta shells in the sauce of wild goat with cheese, roasted in the oven
Both are VERY YUMMY!!! But also very strong and caloric (no wonder, if they have to climb these high mountains!) so watch out on how much you have, but in any case, you are guaranteed a good fuel for excessive walking/skiing/hiking/whatever you want to do, after this bombastic meal!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
