In a large bowl whisk eggs, milk and squash. Gradually stir in enough flour to form a thick batter. Season heavily with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Using a rubber spatula, press batter through a colander into a large pot of boiling salted water. When spaetzle float to top, they are done.

Melt butter in a saute pan add spaetzle, and toss until warmed through; add parsley and bread crumbs, if desired and season to taste with salt and pepper.
