      I loved the taste of the spaetzle! However I chose to use a potato ricer to push the batter through which was a huge mistake. I either have to learn how to use the potato ricer better or find something better to use. This recipe is definitely going to be used once I can figure it out.

      Made for PAC Fall 2012.
