Spaetzle – its a celebration of all things Octoberfest!  Join me as we examine the many possibilities of this versatile German pasta.  Think of it as your side dish instead of potatoes, pasta, or rice.  It also can become a main by adding sliced sausage.  My daughter-in-law adds sautéed mushrooms to excite her children’s palate.  So, you may not be able to say it correctly (like me) but you can cook it up a storm and add a little diversity to your meals.  Prost!
