Recipe For Gluten Free Spaetzle


Gluten-free spaetzle are a rustic Eastern European pasta.

I grew up eating spaeztle. My father is mostly German with just a smidgen of Irish. Those German cooks in my family passed down certain recipes that came from the Old Country. When my dad married my completely non-German mother, he insisted that his mom teach her how to make spaeztle.

My kids and husband all love regular spaeztle, but I was seriously missing them with my gluten intolerance. So, with determination, I attacked the recipe and came up with this gluten-free version. I was pretty pleased with the results. Remember to drizzle lots of butter over the cooked pasta. It’s the only way.
