The world Spätzle is plural form of “Spatz” which means “sparrow”. The geographic origin of “little sparrows” is not known – the first time they were mentioned in 1725.Today they are considered a Swabian specialty.

I don’t remember when was the first time when I have eaten Spätzle, but I do remember this one time when my boyfriend cook them for me and I didn’t want to eat anything else for a week. This recipe is how he makes it – and trust me – he is the best at it.
