Apricot/Nectarine Noodle Kugel
Usually I make this with apricots but I had sliced nectarines in the freezer-so in they went. Danny didn't know the difference and he happily shoveled forkful after forkful into his mouth without pause. This is another thing I don't make often (because it has a million calories) so it tends to go quickly when I do. Kugel is great hot or cold.
You Will Need:
1 1/2 cups dry broad noodles, cooked and drained
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cottage cheese (go ahead and use the 4 % milkfat or it will be dry)
1/2 cup sour cream (use the real stuff or it will be watery)
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sultanas
8 fresh or tinned apricots or nectarines (peaches work great too) chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish
Cook and drain noodles. Combine with everything else and pour into dish. Bake about 40 minutes or until top is browned and most of the liquid has solidified. Serve warm or cold.
