    ktenille's Note:

    My DF spent 5 months in Austria and misses the food terribly. So for our anniversary tonight I decided to take on the challenge of making one of his favorites. I searched and searched and found recipes and was completely lost on cheeses . . . hard to find some of those good European cheeses in the US. Finally I called up an old family friend who called her mother in Germany and came up with this recipe that my DF says is dead on perfect! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Hope you enjoy it too.

      I LOVE KAESE SPAETZLE!! When I was growing up, Mom would make this for favorite dish. She would use swiss cheese and that's what I used when I made this. I used a spaetzle maker which my sister had bought me. Thanks for bringing back wonderful tasting memories.

      This was just like the Spaetzle I got at stands in Germany. :) Yum! I made it for a group dinner, and everybody loved it. I put onions in the pan along with the noodles when I browned them. But since I don't have a Spaetzle press and made a double batch, it took me over 2 hours just to make the noodles. Exhausting, but worth it on occasion.

      In Switzerland we also added carmelized onions and bacon and called it (the English translation)Alpine Macaroni. You can also use Gruyere cheese.
