    Normaone's Note:

    Here is a nifty little side dish. It's inexpensive and really quite easy to prepare. Plus, they can be boiled in advance and sauteed just before serving. These little dumplings are kind of like spaetzle and would go nicely with anything grilled. You could also combine them with any number of sauces: tomato, cheese, etc. I hope you enjoy them!

      Dumplings looked appealing, but tasted very bland. Hubby agreed. If I were to try again I would have to alter the recipe quite a bit to add more flavor. Recipe definitely has potential, though.

      Very good, and different, although not very attractive (maybe I'll get better with practice). Added brown sugar on top which, to us, made it a "5".

      I"m sorry, but I have to agree with natureprincess. Not only did they lose all of their "pumpkiness" after cooking, the texture was not good. I have been making spätzle for several years using a spätzle maker and I used that for these. I cooked them adequately, and then sautéed them, and they were totally bland and very soft. I have a NY Times recipe also, and I may delete that one from my computer as well. I have never given anything a 1-star rating, or even come close to it, I am sorry, but these deserved it. I'm sticking with my regular, excellent spätzle recipe from now on.
