Spaetzle [SHPEHT-sluh] — which means "little sparrow" in German — is essentially tiny egg noodles or dumplings. It's sold alongside dry pasta and rice.
Cook spaetzle in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions.
Add asparagus in the final 3 minutes of boiling the spaetzle; drain, then transfer spaetzle and asparagus to a bowl.
Stir in Gruyère, lemon juice, and mustard; season with salt and pepper.
