Tried this a few years ago and thought that it sounded like something that I would not enjoy. Turns out it is one of my favorite dishes for dessert. I serve it for Christmas Eve dinner. Jewish Mommas know how good kugels are. Savory or sweet (this one is sweet) everyone should know about kugels!
Cook noodles till al dente and drain. Melt butter in a 10 x 12 inch glass baking dish in 350 degree oven till melted and pour off into noodles. Add the rest of the ingredients except pie filling. Mix well. Pour into baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with pie filling and bake another 30 minutes till hot and bubbly. Cut into wedges and serve either warm or room temperature.
Original recipe calls for just one can of cherry pie filling, but I like it with two cans.
