- Blend the flour, spices, water, oil and eggs into a smooth batter until firm. When you lift the dough with a wooden spoon, it should fall heavily. Allow the dough to rest a bit.
- Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Press the dough through a spatzle slicer and let the pieces drop into the hot water. After bring-ing the spatzle to the boil, remove and wash them with running water.
- Cut the pancetta into thin strips and baste in a little oil. Add cream and allow it to reduce.
- Toss in the spatzle and sprinkle a little fresh mountain cheese over it before serving.
