    i doubled this recipe and placed in 9 by 13 inch pan. it was excellent. next time, however, i would choose to cover the kugel with foil and remove foil about 10-15 minutes before serving, so that kugel will brown.  -  03 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was WONDERFUL! The whole family loved it. The recipe doesn't say crushed pineapple, but the directions mention it. I didn't use the sliced pineapple (forgot it) and nicely decorated the top w/ the cherries. On 1/2 of the kugel, I added raisins (1/2 the family likes raisins, the other half don't). I used a 16 oz can of crushed pineapple and so glad I did- YUMMY! I also used more noodles than the recipe (about 2-3 oz more). I know it's supposed to be a side dish, but I used it as my dessert and it was a smash! ENJOY!  -  01 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a nice lighter version of kugel. I served it at a brunch where there were several kugels. I noticed that this one was gobbled up and everyone finished their portion. I think I will put it in a smaller dish next time. I put foil on for the first thirty minutes but still some of the noodles seemed dry around the edges. A smaller dish may eliminate the dry edges. I left off the cherries.  -  06 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
