We love spaetzle! Kind of like a pasta similar to Gnocchi. We serve spaetzle with lots of real butter and I love to add just a shake of garlic powder, just enough for a very subtle garlic flavor. You can also add a little finely chopped parsley to the dough.

I got a spaetzle maker recently and was excited to make these and they didn't disappoint!! I made these to serve along side Recipe #100005. They were so good with the extra sauce I made for these to catch! It is nice to have a new fantastic new side dish rather than the usual potatoes, rice, pasta.
