Cheese Spätzle is a traditional German way of serving this favorite German noodle. Using either the homemade recipe or store-bought noodles, the resulting dinner is delicious. Follow my recipe below to serve them in a delicious cheese spätzle casserole. It’s German “Mac & Cheese” only better! Really.
