March Spotlight:  SPÄTZLE

    March Spotlight:  Spätzle
The Italians aren't the only pasta-lovers. The German answer to pasta is Spätzle. Spätzle are made from flour, eggs, water, and salt. Compared to Italian pasta, the Spätzle dough is moister and softer.

Spätzle are loved in Germany and are part of its identity and cooking-culture. Although Spätzle are served and enjoyed throughout Germany, they are considered a specialty of the Swabian (Schwaben) region. Other names for Spätzle include Spätzli, Spatzen, and Knöpfle (short & round version of the Spätzle found in the Baden region).

Recipe of the Month

(Spätzle & Cheese)

Käsespätzle are Germany's version of Mac & Cheese and they are one of Germany's favorite Spätzle dishes. Traditionally, they are made with Emmentaler cheese, but a combination of other cheeses (such as Bergkäse, Gorgonzola, Romadur, and Limburger) are also common.  Which cheese (or combination of cheeses) to use is a regional and personal preference.

Käsespätzle are simple to make.  Alternate cooked Spätzle, cheese, and some caramalized onions in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with some extra cheese and bake until the top layer of cheese is thoroughly melted and lightly browned.
