So I’m really into trying all sorts of pasta’s !!
Not just traditional Italian pasta but, pastas from all over the world. And this my friends was absolutely no exception to the rule!! This is basically just a egg pasta.. A “German” egg pasta. What better way to enjoy this wonderful and quite hearty German pasta than with some brats and almost a cheddar and BEER fondue sauce??? I can’t think of anything!! Lol
1 lb Spaetzle
4 pre-cooked brats sliced
2 bottles of any pale ale you like
3 to 4 cups shredded cheddar
2 cloves garlic chopped
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Cook Spaetzle as directed on package.
Drain and set aside.
In a med sauce pan, heat on med high and add beer, once beer is boiling, whisk in cheddar cheese , smoked paprika and chopped garlic. Stir and lower heat to low. Cook for about 3 extra mins to let the FLAVORS combine ( add just a tiny bit of salt and lots of pepper, the salt in the cheese with give the extra flavor you need without adding tons of salt).Add your cooked brats and pasta right to your cheese sauce and combine. Let stand in low heat for about 5 mins just to heat your brats and pasta. Serve immediately in a serving dish . Chopped parsley for garnish.
Cooking time: approx 25 mins
