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.
