The little dough pieces are made from a soft pasta batter. When you use a press you can make the typical southern German Spaetzle or little sparrows.
The batter can be dropped into boiling water and the pieces cook for 3 to 5 minutes and are ready to eat.
They go great with all braised meat that had enough sauce. Or just eat them as they are. Browned in a pan in a bit of nut butter.
With a salad to the side that is a good lunch.
I made a green bean salad.
