This recipe was provided by a professional chef or restaurant and may have been scaled down from a bulk recipe. The Food Network Kitchens chefs have not tested this recipe, in the proportions indicated, and therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.
Heat the olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Saute the onions with the garlic until soft, but do not brown. Reduce the heat to low, add in the peppers and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the tomatoes, cover and simmer until the tomatoes start to break down, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the paprika. Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool completely. Refrigerate or freeze and use when needed.
Special equipment: Large-holed grater or strainer

Sift the flour and 1 tablespoon salt together into a large mixing bowl. Add 3/4 cup water and the eggs and mix until just combined (do not over mix).

Bring a large pot of water to boil with a pinch of salt. Pour in the melted butter. Ladle large spoonfuls of the dough into the grater or strainer and push the dough through directly into the boiling water. Repeat until all the dough is used. Once the dumplings float, strain into a bowl. Serve with goulash over the spaetzle.
