Overnight Matzo Bake

This is a Passover-friendly take on a breakfast noodle kugel! We often eat kugel with raisins and cinnamon. I chose to use raisins, dried apples, and dried apricots. Kugels are usually very dense and have a ton of sour cream and cottage cheese/cream cheese in them. I added just a bit of sour cream to keep things a bit lighter.
