This is my grandmom from Russia's Jewish kugel recipe. Some people call kugel "noodle pie". As I got older & started playing with recipes, I added an Italian flair [example: traded cottage cheese for ricotta]. You don't have to be Jewish to love this dish!!! Many "goyim" [non-Jewish] love it! People of all backgrounds have offered to pay me to make them a kugel.

The recipe is simple to follow & not too messy.

Please give me your feedback!

How to Make Kugel

Step-by-Step

  1. Leave out butter, cream cheese & ricotta cheese to soften to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  3. Boil large pot of water for noodles. Cook. Use colander to drain thoroughly.
  4. In large bowl:
  5. Add eggs & butter. Mix [using hand or standing mixer] 1 minute.
  6. Add ricotta cheese. Mix 1 minute.
  7. Add sugar. Mix 1 minute.
  8. Add milk & vanilla. Mix 2 minutes.
  9. Add drained noodles into the large bowl with the mixed ingredients. Using long spoon, stir noodles & Mixture until well blended.

    After 1st 30 minutes, check for done by inserting knife every 15 minutes. Kugel is done when inserted knife comes out clean.

    Remove foil last 15 minutes. Judge by your preference for top crunchiness. [I don't like it brown or crunchy at all, but that's just me].
  14. When done, remove from oven. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  15. Some people like to dip the kugel into sour cream on side of plate.
