Käsespätzle Recipe Austrian



Käsespätzle is a dish that traditionally comes from Austria and Germany. And the name says it all; there is a lot of cheese in it. You make the pasta yourself using a colander or a special mold.

I suspect that this special shape is not easy to find in the Netherlands, but you can also work with a colander and turn the dough into pasta.

What that is what this is in essence; a variation on pasta. It’s a completely different way to make pasta and the käsespätzle that you then bake in the oven with lots of cheese is a nice variation on our regular pasta.

Of course you can also choose this if you don’t feel like making the spätzle. But if you want to try something different? The recipe can be found below!
