Hi there, I’m thinking waaay ahead to the holidays and was wondering if anyone has used regular pasta instead of traditional egg noodles in a kugel. I always use my mother/grandmother’s recipe which is sweet–it has sliced apples, raisins and crushed pineapple. Oh, and sugar–it’s VERY sweet! But it’s a good counterpoint to the brisket I make, which is heavy.
I think a short, curly pasta would hold up well, and the kugel would be easier to cut after baking. Unless I break the noodles into smaller pieces before cooking. Any thoughts, suggestions?
