- 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.
- 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.
- Top the spaetzle with the butter and toss lightly to coat.
- Garnish with parsley and/or bread crumbs.
