Super Spinach and Onion Kugel

Kugel is a baked Ashkenazi Jewish casserole most commonly made from egg noodles or potatoes. I am Episcopalian and my husband is Jewish. After attending several of the Jewish holiday dinners, I made it a mission to learn to make one of the dishes well. I tried about 10 different kugel recipes, and finally came up with two that are not only enjoyed but always requested. With Passover on the horizon -- plus a request for an explanation of what kugel was by a friend -- I though it was time to post this creation. Mazel Tov!

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! The Test Kitchen
