  3. Once the water is at a rolling boil, spoon the dough into a Spätzle  press or into a colander. Squeeze the Spätzle  press lightly or press the dough into the colander with the back of a spoon. The dough will hang and drop into the water as you continue pressing the dough.
  4. The dough will sink and rise quickly in the water as the noodles cook. Try not to overcrowd the pot. Boil the spaetzle for about 2-4 minutes per batch, until the Spätzle  are puffed slightly like a skinny dumpling. With a slotted spoon, remove the Spätzle  to a large bowl with a lid, or cover with a towel, while you continue cooking the rest of the dough.
  5. Top the spaetzle with the butter and toss lightly to coat.
  6. Garnish with parsley and/or bread crumbs.
