  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, cottage cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
  3. Stir in the flour until a smooth, thick, sticky batter forms.
  4. Spoon the batter into a colander with 1/4-inch holes.
  5. Set or hold the colander 1 inch above the boiling water and scrape the batter through the holes, using a rubber spatula.
  6. Stir the spaetzle once or twice to separate them.
  7. As soon as they rise to the surface, use a slotted spoon to transfer the spaetzle to a clean colander and drain well.
  8. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet. Add the boiled spaetzle and cook them over moderately high heat, stirring and shaking the skillet occasionally, until the spaetzle are browned and crisp in spots, about 5 minutes.
  9. Add the quark and snipped chives, reduce the heat to moderately low and cook, stirring, until the sauce is creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Season the spaetzle with salt and pepper and serve right away.
