Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Kosher salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup mixed chopped herbs (parsley, chives, marjoram, oregano or dill are great)

Extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil over medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and milk until they are a homogeneous mixture.
  3. In a large bowl, add flour and make a hole in the flour. Add a pinch of salt and using a fork, gradually combine the milk/egg mixture with the flour. Mix until they are just combined. Stir in 1/4 cup of the herbs.
  4. Place the batter in a colander over the boiling water. Using a rubber spatula or a spaetzle maker, push the batter through a colander into the boiling water. Boil the spaetzle for 2 to 3 minutes or until firm. Drain the spaetzle and place in a medium bowl. Add some olive oil and the remaining 1/4 cup of herbs. Toss to coat evenly and serve immediately.
  5. What cuties!
