I came up with this recipe after making spaetzle at home, which was a complete pain-in-the-skillet. This tastes just like spaetzle but is so much easier.
1 bag of egg noodles (I use the widest ones I can find)
salt and pepper
Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain and place the empty pot back on the stove. With the heat on medium, add a bit of olive oil and a few tablespoons of butter. Once the butter is melted, add a pinch of salt, pepper and some freshly grated nutmeg. Stir together, then add the noodles. Mix everything together and cook for a few minutes. If the noodles look a little dry, add a bit more butter.
