Description

A luxe option for a family meal but special enough for when you're hosting a few guests, these tender, nutmeg-infused spinach dumplings offer an update on the plainer classic. Once boiled, the spatzle is tossed in a peppery white wine, Parmesan and crème fraîche-based cream sauce that's dotted with pan-fried speck. Both the dumplings and the sauce can be made in advance and stored separately in the refrigerator in airtight containers.

Ingredients

350 grams spinach (cooked, drained and chopped)
1 cup water
300 grams flour
2 eggs
ground nutmeg
salt
30 grams butter
150 grams speck (or smoked ham, chopped)
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup crème fraîche
4 tablespoons parmesan cheese (grated)
ground black pepper

Directions

1In a bowl, mix the spinach, water, flour, eggs, nutmeg, and salt into a soft dough.
2Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
3Place the dough onto a wet chopping board and cut off little strips of dough with a sharp knife and add to boiling salted water.
4Bring to the boil and then remove with a slotted spoon.
5Rinse briefly with cold water.
6In a skillet, add the speck with the butter, and then add the wine.
7Bring to the boil briefly, and then add the creme fraiche, Parmesan cheese, and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
8Add the Spätzle and mix well.
9Serve warm.
