Check out Oma's homemade German Spätzle recipe if you want to learn her way of how to make noodles, these Spätzle.
I used to think that whenever Mutti made a noodle dish that we were eating "Italian-style". It was only when I started this website and started searching German recipes and origins, that I realized that noodles are VERY German. This is especially true of southern Germany. Since my Mutti and Papa came from the Berlin area, this was not part of our culture.
After you've tried this recipe, why not try another one of Oma's homemade noodles with the strange name of "Schupfnudeln" which is made from mashed potatoes.
