Preparing Spaetzle Pasta

Preparing Spaetzle Pasta

Let the spaetzle simmer briefly in hot water & as soon as they float to the surface they are ready & can be lifted out of the water with a skimmer. Allow the cooked spaetzle to drain briefly & then place them in a large baking pan.

Now process or use up the spaetzle dough completely & put the done spaetzle pasta in the baking dish, then mix with 200 milliliters of cream & set aside until further use.

Tip: If you don’t want to prepare the spaetzle yourself or don’t have the equipment for it, you can also use spaetzle from the refrigerated section or the dried version.

Preheat the oven to 200°C (top/bottom heat). Peel off 2 large onions & roughly chop. Grate 200 grams of mountain cheese with a grater & set aside. Heat up a pan with a piece of butter, add chopped onions and 200 grams of bacon bits to the pan & sauté over medium heat for 3 – 4 minutes, turning occasionally.
