This recipe gets 5 stars for taste and 3 stars for preparation. I thought is was an excellent dish, and even my husband, a meat and potatoes man, ate it right up. However, I had a difficult time making it. I don't have a spaetzle maker so I used a colander with course holes. The dough was too thick (or maybe my colander holes were too thin) and did not drop into the water as it should have. I ended up dropping the dough into the water with a spoon. While the pasta did not look as it should have, it didn't seem to greatly affect the rest of the meal preparation. I also found that the pasta preparation was a bit labor intensive. This might not be a problem for some cooks, but with three young children crawling up my legs, I wasn't able to give my full attention to making the dish as I should have. If I attempt this meal in the future, I might try to cook all the pasta at the same time and then drain the pot so I don't have to remove the pasta with a spoon and to save time. However, as I said earlier, this is a delicious meal that I highly recommend, especially for cooks who like to try new and different dishes.
