Nutritional values

Here, cheese provides about a third of the daily calcium for children and even half for adults. The spaetzle also contains a portion of the daily vegetable portion and a thick portion of the vascular-protecting bioactive substance lycopene.

For classic cheese spaetzle: use grated hard cheese (30% F.i.d.); instead of tomatoes and courgettes, cut 2 bunches of spring onions into fine rings and sauté in 1 tablespoon of rapeseed oil before serving.
