Noodle Kugel

Kugel is a type of baked noodle or vegetable pudding, usually served for holidays and major celebratory meals as an accompaniment. Some believe that the kugel originated in Persia—today's Iran—and then spread to Eastern Europe. What makes this version so different and so spectacular is the use of very thin, very short noodles instead of the more common broad ones. This dish freezes well after it is cooled.
