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

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