Spinach Spaetzle is one such recipe.
|Green and delicious!|
I modified it slightly, and served it with some turkey kielbasa. It was such an incredible win that everyone practically begged me to make it again, and soon! I think I can comply with that request! I used my spaetzle maker, but you could also push the dough through a colander... I personally prefer the shape of the noodles when made with the spaetzle maker...
Try this! It's yummy, and super easy to boot!
Spinach Spaetzle with Sausage
1/2 c frozen spinach, thawed and drained (final volume will be 1/2 c)
1 c skim milk
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 1/2 c flour
2-4 Tbsp butter
1/4 c parmesan cheese
1/4 c cream cheese
1 link kielbasa (I used turkey kielbasa), diced
Combine the spinach, milk, egg, and oil in a blender or in an immersion blender cup.
Blend until the spinach is pureed and the other ingredients are all mixed in. Pour into a bowl and gradually whisk in the nutmeg and the flour. This will form a sticky dough.
Meanwhile, boil a large pot of water. Once it begins boiling, press the dough through a spaetzle maker or a colander. Cook in two batches, for about a minute, or until the spaetzle is floating. When it is done cooking, drain and transfer to a frying pan.
Over medium-high heat, melt the butter into the spaetzle noodles and fry until well coated.
Stir in the cheese and cream cheese to make a sauce. Cook the kielbasa in a separate pan, and then stir into the spaetzle and serve.
