This is an old family recipe that I recently entered in the 2001 Ventura County Fair and won 'Honorable Mention' for in the Pudding Division. There was no category for Kugel, but the judges loved it and still wanted to honor me with a ribbon! Hope you enjoy it as well.

I don't think I have ever been asked by as many people as I was for this Kugel recipe! It was THE best but I did play with the recipe a bit. I used a container of Pineapple cottage cheese instead of the cream cheese then I added one more egg and a medium can of crushed pineapple and it's juice. It was fabulous! I hope I can do it again and make it as good!

Followed this recipe with the exception of peach juice vs. apricot nectar (could not find any). It was good my kids weren't real impressed. It falls into the category of a bread pudding or rice pudding and I prefer the other venues better. Just a matter of preference it is a good recipe.

My 2 year old loves noodles and she INHALED this dish. My 5 year old helped me make it so it is definitely easy. For people who like subtle taste it is on the mark. Next time I'll try and sneak more apricot in and double the topping which was devine. Think it's worth your trying.

Everybody loved this kugel. My husband's grandmother already asked me if I was going to make it again for the holidays!

This recipe was good although I had to change it a bit because my Walmart does not carry apricot nectar. (I used peach instead.) I will leave out the raisins next time and I think I'll add more sugar to make it a bit sweeter. Also I mixed the noodle mixture the night before and added the topping the next day just before I cooked it. This worked perfectly - although I added a few more minutes to the baking time. I brought it to a Seder a few nights ago and several people commented on how good it was. Over all it turned out good one of the better kugel recipes that I have tried.

This is the best noodle kugel recipe. It is so moist and delicious. I substituted half and half for the milk for extra creaminess. My family loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this recipe for a party of over 100 people. All of it was eaten and praised. People said they had seconds and thirds instead of dessert. I will be sure to make it again.

Unbelievable - so delish. I cut down on the butter though - it was just too much - and next time I might cut even more. I didn't have white sugar so I used brown and it was fantastic.

I didn't follow this exactly - but I used the basic amounts for a quick kugel with the ingredients I had on hand. I used a 12-oz box of tri-color twist pasta. I left out the apricot nectar and raisins - and even with a reduced amt of sugar it was plenty sweet for us. The rest was like the recipe but with a bit more cream cheese and 4 eggs instead of 3. I just sprinkled cinnamon and sugar for a topping. Came out great!
