Super Spinach and Onion Kugel
I snuck a bite of the spinach mix before I combined it with the noodles, and it was really tasty. I knew I'd like this dish once cooked. I did cover this with tinfoil about halfway through baking to make sure the noodles didn't get too hard. This was a big hit in the Test Kitchen!
