Apple Spaetzle with Mustard & Red Cabbage

In Germany and Austria, spaetzle is generally served as a side dish with long-roasted meats. Here, we take a store-bought shortcut by purchasing spaetzle, which means this satisfying side can be on the table in 20 minutes. The cabbage, mustard, and apple capture some of the quintessential flavors of Germany, while providing a foil for the richness of roasted or braised meat.
