Total Time:

4 servings

  • 5 quarts salted water
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups packed fresh parsley leaves (preferably flat-leafed), washed and spun dry
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • In a 6-quart kettle, bring 5 quarts salted water to a boil.

  • In a large bowl whisk together flour and salt.

  • In a heavy saucepan, bring milk just to a simmer. Put the parsley in a blender. With the blender motor running, add the milk to the parsley, and blend until milk is very green.

  • In a bowl, whisk together eggs and water and add green milk in a slow stream, whisking constantly.

  • Add milk mixture to flour mixture, whisking until mixture forms a soft, smooth batter-like dough.

  • Force the dough through a spaetzle-maker into the boiling water, or drizzle through a large-holed colander.

  • Stir the spaetzle gently, to separate, and boil for 5 minutes, or until just tender.

  • In a large colander drain the spaetzle and place in serving bowl.

  • In a small heavy saucepan, cook the rosemary with salt and pepper, to taste, in butter over moderate heat, stirring, for 2 minutes.

  • Drizzle the rosemary butter over the spaetzle, tossing well.

  • Season the spaetzle with salt and pepper.
