FFWD: herb-speckled spaetzle

It's French Friday with Dorie time again. This time a recipe with spaetzle and herbs. Never tasted it before, so this could be a surprise. The name reminded me that the recipe originated from somewhere in German/Austria and it seemed to be true.
It looks a bit like pasta, but with it's own way of preparation. Officially you need a special spaetzle tool to make it, but I used my potato masher and it worked very good. 

It tasted really great. Because of the herbs and the onion it had a great flavour. In the original recipe mushrooms were used as well, but because of allergies, we didn't use them. Dorie said this recipe is great with fish and it will be, I'm sure.
If you want to try it, be sure to buy the book Around my french table of Dorie Greenspan. If you want to know what the other thought of it, check out: www.frenchfridayswithdorie.com.

Such a pretty picture of perfect looking spaetzle. You are right, a potato masher works great. This was a fun project.

Lovely job! These were really good, though my gluten-free version could use a little adjustment.
