RECIPE: Spaetzle and Dill Sauce

Not that you asked for it, but here’s another way to use that amazing dill sauce…

Here’s the OTHER way I use it… Swedish Meatballs ( < —- oh yum! )

Find some good quality spaetzle … spaetzle is typically considered a German food. But can also be found in other countries. Check out the link for more info…

I bought this spaetzle at World Market. If your grocery store doesn’t carry this in the pasta section then check in a food specialty store in your area. Cook it according to the instructions on the back… and then drain and toss it into the large pan with the sauce. Toss well until all of the spaetzle is covered with sauce.

1/8 cup flour
1 cup chicken broth

Melt half stick of butter in a large pan; stir in flour; gradually stir in broth. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until sauce bubbles & thickens. Stir in sour cream, ground nutmeg and dill. Add kosher salt/pepper to taste.

Drain spaetzle and add to sauce. Toss until spaetzle is covered with sauce. Serve immediately.
